Infonetics Research Group PON and FTTH report

Apologies for not having any blog updates for about a month, it has been a pretty dry June, and I was vacationing for a bit. Am now recharged :), ready to blog for another year. By the way, this September will mark the two year anniversary of this blog.

The Infonetics Research PON and FTTH Equipment and Subscribers" report released last week was very encouraging. Worldwide PON sales are up to $336 million in the first quarter of 2007, while Ethernet FTTH (including EPON) sales are up to $81 million.

Some other good news are:
- Korea is on track to add 700,000 to 800,000 EPON subscribers by the end of 2007.
- EPON subscribers make up 64% of worldwide subscribers, BPON 33%, GPON 3% in 2006. However, this market share will change very soon as Verizon deploys GPON in 2007. The report also quotes Verizon already having 500,000 FiOS customers.

TThe report also predicts high growth for FTTH technologies as service providers aim to deliver more and more bandwidth to the end-user to provide enhanced quality video-on-demand, peer-to-peer networking, online gaming and other high bandiwdth services.
