The residential gateway market continued its rise in the broadband customer premises equipment (CPE) space, primarily due to telco providers favoring gateways over modems since gateways fulfill consumer demand and promise greater future revenue possibilities for operators. As a result, new In-Stat research forecasts that residential gateway revenues will surpass $10 billion in 2015.

“We define residential gateways as essentially any type of broadband modem that also includes routing and/or wireless access point capabilities, says Vahid Dejwakh, Analyst. “More and more different types of modems now also come with embedded Wi-Fi, which qualifies them as residential gateways, and many more telco service providers are supplying residential gateways instead of just DSL broadband modems. This is not only because customers request a gateway, but also to present possible future service add-ons and to increase their ability to manage their customers’ networks.”

Additional research findings include:

  • Residential gateway shipments will overtake broadband modem shipments in 2014 as more and more devices incorporate Wi-Fi and routing capabilities.
  • Worldwide fixed satellite CPE revenues are expected to pass $340 million by 2014
  • Fixed wireless broadband CPE is expected to increase at the fastest pace of all access technologies, with a CAGR of about 10% over the next five years.
  • Tellabs, Motorola, and Alcatel-Lucent are leaders in FTTH CPE.

Recent In-Stat research Residential Gateways Take Over Broadband CPE Volume (#IN1104652RC) covers broadband modems, SOHO routers, and residential gateway equipment for DSL, cable, fiber-to-the-home/premises (FTTH/P), fixed wireless broadband (FWB), and fixed satellite broadband (FSB), and it includes:

  • Annual router shipments by wired-only and Wi-Fi technology by region from 2010 to 2015
  • Annual revenues by region for each type of access technology: DSL, FTTH/P, fixed wireless, and fixed satellite CPE, from 2010 to 2015
  • Annual revenues by region for all router shipments, from 2010 to 2015
  • Regional breakouts for Asia/Pacific, Europe, North America, and ROW
