The goal of this technology and marketing report is to present current and near-term advances in the wired broadband access.  Particular, the report concentrates on the analysis technologies and markets for the following industries:

  • RFoG – RF over Glass technology – standardized by the Society of Cable and Telecommunications Engineers.
  • Passive Optical Networks (PONs) – standardized by the IEEE and ITU.
  • New generations of DSL – in the development and standardization by the ITU and the industry.

The report stresses one of the major trends in the broadband wired access: the development of multi-functional platforms that allow flexibility and cost efficiency to serve a diversified group of users.

The standardization processes are analyzed in details. Marketing statistics are presented. The report also presents detailed surveys of multiple companies that are working in the related industries and their products portfolios.

The report aim is to reach to a wide audience of technical, managerial and sales staff involved in the development of telecommunications and related industries.

Research Methodology

Considerable research was done using the Internet. Information from various Web sites was studied and analyzed. Evaluation of publicly available marketing and technical publications was conducted. Telephone conversations and interviews were held with industry analysts, technical experts and executives. In addition to these interviews and primary research, secondary sources were used to develop a more complete mosaic of the market landscape, including industry and trade publications, conferences and seminars.

The overriding objective throughout the work has been to provide valid and relevant information. This has led to a continual review and update of the information content.

Target Audience

This report is important to a wide population of researches, technical and sales staff involved in the developing of the broadband access services and products.  It is recommended for both service providers and vendors that are working on related technologies.
