According to a recently published report from telecommunications, security, networks, and data centre industries market information source Dell’Oro Group, total global revenue for the Broadband Access equipment market increased to $19 billion (€18bn) in 2022, up 17 per cent year-over-year (Y/Y). Spending on PON equipment continues to fuel the overall market, with revenue for PON OLTs (Optical Line Terminals) and ONTs (Optical Network Terminals) reaching $11.7 billion for the year.
“The focus on upgrading and expanding broadband access networks was a clear focus for operators around the world in 2022,” said Jeff Heynen, Vice President with Dell’Oro Group. “We expect broadband to remain a critical area of investment in 2023, as operators expand their footprint and increase the speeds and services they offer subscribers,” he added.

- Total XGS-PON OLT port shipments exceeded 2 million for the year, reaching a total of 2.3 million worldwide.
- Total cable access concentrator revenue was up 1 per cent Y/Y at $1 billion. Remote PHY devices, Remote OLTs, and Virtual CMTS platforms all recorded significant revenue gains for the year, as cable operators continue to expand their DAA and fibre initiatives.
