Broadband Customer Premises Equipment Shipments

Across the globe, the increasing demand for wireline broadband Internet access creates the need for additional network infrastructure, and the associated modem and/or router devices that are installed at the subscriber location.

In 2Q11, 39.8 million broadband customer premise equipment (CPE) units shipped, a 5.6 percenet increase from the previous quarter and a 13.9 percent increase from the same quarter last year.

Total revenues were $1.49 billion, a 3.1 percent decrease from the previous quarter -- and that's down 1.4 percent from last previous year, according to the latest market study by In-Stat.

“In terms of overall unit shipment market share growth, TP-LINK continues to gain market share, growing over 20 percent, while NETGEAR also gained that amount,” says Brad Shaffer, Analyst at In-Stat.

Pace and Cisco Small Business also experienced market share gains from the previous quarter.
