This presentation provides an overview of the wireline broadband access equipment market with a detailed focus on PON and the PON equipment ecosystem.


  • The PON equipment market is strong and will remain strong, although FTTH household penetration rates vary significantly by country. FTTH network builds remain difficult for many reasons.
  • There are numerous next-gen PON standards and convergence of EPON and GPON at 25G/100G is being pursued, although full convergence is unlikely to happen.
  • PON is supporting nonresidential applications and next-gen PON has the opportunity to support mobile backhaul and possibly mobile fronthaul. PON is also being used for POL (passive optical LAN).

  • Provides a detailed overview of the PON equipment market along with a review of the ASPs for PON optics and equipment with a focus on North America and China.
  • Analyzes the adoption of next-gen PON by country, and reviews the impact of the next-gen PON market on component and equipment vendors.
  • Reviews the next-gen copper and coax markets.
  • Assesses the key PON equipment vendors and their respective market shares.

Key questions answered

  • Which countries are adopting next-gen PON? What is the impact of next-gen PON on vendors and why?
  • What are the ASPs for current PON and next-gen PON equipment? How do the ASPs vary by country/region?
  • What is the opportunity for PON in supporting LANs? Will PON be able to support mobile backhaul? Will PON be able to support mobile fronthaul? What are the challenges regarding mobile backhaul and mobile fronthaul?
  • Is ADSL still being deployed and if so, where?
