China driving broadband hardware growth in Asia-Pacific

01 January 2010 |


The Asia-Pacific region represents the largest broadband aggregation hardware opportunity in the world, with China leading the way.

The amount of money being spent in China on broadband aggregation equipment is astounding, thanks to a swelling middle class, aggressive national broadband initiatives, and heightened competition among China’s newly-restructured telcos to launch premium broadband services and hold on to subscribers, Infonetics Research’s Broadband Aggregation Hardware in Asia Pacific reports.

Although the overall DSL market is shrinking, the decline will be slowed by service providers deploying ADSL2+ and VDSL2 to deliver triple-play services in China, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand, Vietnam, and Indonesia, according to Infonetics Research.
