REDWOOD CITY, Calif., May 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a newly published report by Dell'Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, first quarter 2013 VDSL port shipments including vectoring products grew more than 15 percent over the year-ago period and accounted for the majority of DSL port shipments for the first time.
"VDSL with vectoring is an attractive alternative to PON for many service providers who want to increase the bandwidth capabilities of their Access networks without the high cost of laying fiber all the way to the user," said Steve Nozik, Principal Analyst of Access research at Dell'Oro Group. "Recent announcements by some large operators regarding their intent to upgrade their access networks with VDSL and vectoring should result in continued VDSL growth over the next several years. Rapidly declining ADSL sales, however, will likely result in the overall DSL market continuing to trend lower, albeit at a slower rate than over the past couple of years," Nozik added.
The Report shows that in the first quarter 2013, Alcatel-Lucent maintained the leading position in VDSL port shipments, significantly ahead of the next two top vendors, Huawei and ADTRAN.
