Infonetics: DOCSIS Channels Pass 1 Million for First Time in Q2; CCAP Revenue Up 42%
CAMPBELL, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its 2nd quarter 2014 (2Q14) CCAP, CMTS, and Edge QAM Hardware and Subscribers report, which tracks cable broadband equipment and subscribers.
“The velocity of the shift from CMTS to CCAP remains phenomenal”
“Easily beating last quarter’s record, combined CCAP (converged cable access platform) and CMTS upstream and downstream DOCSIS channel shipments reached 1.2 million in the second quarter of 2014 (2Q14), the first time total DOCSIS channel shipments exceeded 1 million in a single quarter,” reports Jeff Heynen, principal analyst for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics Research.
“The velocity of the shift from CMTS to CCAP remains phenomenal,” continues Heynen. “Global CCAP revenue jumped another 42% sequentially in 2Q14, as cable operators continued to shift spending to CCAP platforms in an effort to take advantage of their higher densities and lower per-channel prices.”
