Home networks to grow 35% in 2007

Home networks to grow 35% in 2007 8.24.2007 [more]
Driven by ever increasing numbers of residential broadband subscribers,
the desire to share bandwidth, and falling prices for networking
equipment, the worldwide installed base of home networks is expected to
grow by over 35% in 2007. Worldwide CPE unit shipments grew almost 20%
in 2006 to 127 mln. By 2011, annual CPE revenue will be dominated by
gateways, with gateways garnering over half of the worldwide revenue.
By 2011, we expect routers to still be comprised of a higher share of
wireless units than DSL gateways. Asia/Pacific’s share of routers will
continue to increase through 2011. This region’s router market is
increasingly being driven by China, due to that region’s annual rise in
the number of home networks. Worldwide home LAN PHY interface shipments
will surpass 500 mln in 2010, In-Stat says.
