Infonetics: Converged Cable Access Platform (CCAP) Channel Shipments Rocket 192% in Q4; Casa Gains

Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its 4th quarter 2013 (4Q13) and year-end CMTS, CCAP, and Edge QAM Hardware and Subscribers report, which tracks cable broadband equipment and subscribers.

ANALYST NOTE

“The pent-up demand for new CCAP (converged cable access platform)-capable equipment is evident in the early volume deployments of CCAP gear, and we expect the upward trend in combined CMTS and CCAP channel shipments to continue as operators prepare their networks for DOCSIS 3.1 and potential remote PHY (physical layer) architectures,” notes Jeff Heynen, principal analyst for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics Research.

Heynen adds: “Casa Systems had an outstanding fourth quarter shipping CCAP equipment globally, but it wasn’t enough to overtake perennial leaders Cisco and Arris. However, these vendors should now be on notice, as Casa’s made inroads and will continue to make this market more dynamic.”

CMTS, CCAP, AND EDGE QAM MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  • 4Q13 marks the highest number of combined CMTS and CCAP upstream and downstream DOCSIS channel shipments on record, owing largely to a 192% sequential jump in CCAP channel shipments
  • Despite an 11% revenue bump in 4Q13, the combined worldwide CMTS, CCAP, and edge QAM market was down 8% in 2013 from the previous year, dropping to $1.3 billion
  • CMTS channel price erosion in the early part of 2013 was the primary reason for the revenue decline, notwithstanding record levels of CMTS and CCAP channel shipments
  • Harmonic is the edge QAM revenue leader in 4Q13 and for the full year 2013
  • Infonetics Research forecasts the global CMTS, CCAP, and edge QAM market to reach $1.7 billion in 2018, a 5-year compound annual growth rate of 5% from 2013 to 2108
