Worldwide voice-enabled broadband CPE (ADSL IADs, EMTAs, and voice terminal adapters) had its biggest quarter to date with $188.4 million in 3Q05, up 2 percent from 2Q05. Annual voice CPE revenue is expected to grow 123 percent between 2004 and 2008 as consumers and enterprises around the world continue to adopt VoIP.

"The convergence of voice, data, and video services is driving CPE growth, particularly voice-enabled CPE, residential gateways and, in the long term, IP set top boxes," said Jeff Heynen, directing analyst for broadband and IPTV at Infonetics Research. "Service convergence is also driving the consolidation of disparate capabilities into highly intelligent, multifunctional CPE designed to simplify the subscriber experience."
