DOCSIS 3.0 to drive revenue for CMTS

August 6, 2008

“Marketing and perception are significant drivers for sales of access infrastructure equipment, especially for cable operators,” said Tam Dell’Oro, Founder of Dell’Oro Group. “While telecom operators are upgrading access networks with VDSL and PON to enable new services such as TV over broadband, Cable operators are upgrading for much different reasons. Cable’s TV service is not deployed over their access network and although increasing Internet traffic is driving higher bandwidth requirements, they are much lower than those for telecom operators. However, to stay competitive in the broadband speed race, cable operators will upgrade to DOCSIS 3.0 especially in areas where telecom operators are deploying VDSL and PON,” added Dell’Oro.
