"Most service providers are looking to VDSL and/or PON to increase the capabilities of their access networks to keep up with increasing internet traffic and to enable new high-bandwidth intensive services including IPTV," said Steve Nozik, Principal Analyst of Access research at Dell'Oro Group.  "Another driver that will likely result in continuing VDSL growth are some newer technological innovations aimed at extending the life of the existing copper infrastructure.  These include vectoring and bonding products which have the promise of dramatically increasing bandwidth without the high cost of laying fiber, an appealing option in these uncertain economic times," Nozik added.      

The report shows that in the second quarter, Adtran, Alcatel-Lucent and Huawei were the lead vendors for VDSL port shipments on network infrastructure equipments, while Huawei, Pace (2Wire) and ZyXEL were the lead vendors for VDSL CPE unit shipments.
