Operators Rate Arris and Pace Top Residential Gateway Vendors in Infonetics Survey

CAMPBELL, Calif.--()--Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its 2014 Residential Gateway Strategies and Vendor Leadership: Global Service Provider Survey, which delves into service providers’ strategies for deploying residential gateways, applications driving deployments, and their top picks for residential gateway vendors, services, technologies, and features.

RESIDENTIAL GATEWAY ANALYST NOTE

“Service providers are increasingly relying on residential gateways instead of basic modems to deliver voice, data, and video services because they can be remotely managed, have an open application layer to add on new features, and offer higher throughput, greater security features, and the ability to monitor revenue-generating traffic within the home network,” notes Jeff Heynen, principal analyst for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics Research.

“Residential gateways have quickly become the new gatekeeper for high-margin traffic,” adds Heynen.

RESIDENTIAL GATEWAY SURVEY HIGHLIGHTS

  • Arris and Pace supplant Huawei and ZTE (from last year’s survey) as the perceived top residential gateway vendors among Infonetics’ operator respondents
  • Multiscreen video is growing quickly: 6% of survey respondents offered the service last year, 55% are offering it today, and 80% plan to offer it next year
  • 802.11ac shows some of the strongest growth among wireless technologies, with just 5% of operators surveyed using it today, moving to 85% in 2015
  • Optimism for G.hn as an in-home networking technology continues to intensify despite the lack of available products: Though no respondents currently use G.hn, 45% expect to
    next year
