DOCSIS 3.0 channel shipments stay strong at 1.2M in Q3, up 95% year-over-year

Displaying the continued strength of the cable broadband market, global shipments of DOCSIS 3.0 channels remained at around 1.2 million for the third quarter, down only very slightly from their record high in Q2 and up 95 percent year over year.

"This reflects just how much the cable companies are investing to support higher-bandwidth services such as IP video and to compete with fiber," notes Jeff Heynen, principal analyst for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics Research.

Worldwide revenue for CCAP, CMTS, edge QAM and CMC equipment totaled $445 million in the third quarter, up 8 percent on a sequential basis, according to the research company.

Revenue from CCAP revenues increased 7 percent quarter to quarter, to $360 million.

Arris remained the market share leader in this combined equipment market, accounting for 50 percent of sales. Cisco ranked second at 30 percent, followed by Casa Systems (18 percent) and Harmonic (3.5 percent).
