4G Fixed Wireless Broadband CPE Growth

To date, the slowest total global broadband service provider Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) market growth this decade had been 2.4 percent (154M units) in 2008, according to the latest market study by In-Stat.

2009 will be even slower. However, cable gateways, Wi-Fi and VoIP routers, and wireless and VoIP DSL CPE units continue to grow in at least double digits.

In addition, several segments of the broadband CPE market, including cable gateways, Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) gateways, and Fixed Wireless Broadband (FWB) CPE are expected to grow considerably faster than the overall market over five years.

"Gigabit Ethernet, VoIP, the DSL Forum's TR-69, and 802.11n are all drivers for CPE upgrades and replacements," says Joyce Putscher, In-Stat analyst. "We're also seeing accelerated growth in FTTH CPE unit shipments in 2009."

In-Stat's market study found the following:

- The overall broadband CPE market includes broadband modems, routers, and residential gateway equipment for DSL, cable, Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH), Fixed Wireless Broadband (FWB), and Fixed Satellite Broadband (FSB).

- VoIP-enabled DSL CPE unit shipments saw healthy growth in 2008. More than half of DSL CPE unit shipments will be VoIP enabled in 2009. Worldwide SOHO/Home Routers with VoIP also grew strongly with over 40 percent unit growth.

- The FTTH CPE segment, which includes ONTs and FTTH Gateways, will see a nearly 20 percent Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) through 2013.

- The majority of global FWB subscribers are now WiMAX. Asia-Pacific has the lead in FWB subscribers and CPE shipments, followed by Europe. In 2011, Asia-Pacific should capture over 50 percent share of the annual FWB CPE shipments.

Mobility-as-a-Service Creates Disruptive Travel Options

Building on significant advances in big data, analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT), more innovative transit service offerings aim to increase public transport ridership and reduce emissions or congestion within metropolitan areas. By providing these services through smartphone apps, the transit services also significantly increase user convenience, providing information on different human mobility offerings -- including public transport, ridesharing, and autonomous vehicles. Mobility-as-a-Service Market Development According to the latest market study by Juniper Research, Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) subscribers will generate $53 billion in revenue for MaaS platform providers by 2027 -- that's rising from $5.3 billion in 2021. Let's start with a basic definition. MaaS is the provision of multi-modal end-to-end travel services through single platforms, by which users can determine an optimal route and price. The study identified a monthly subscription model as key to incr

Robocall Mitigation Solutions to Halt Criminal Threats

If you answer the phone and hear a recorded message instead of a live person, it's likely a robocall. A robocall is a phone call that uses a computerized autodialer to deliver a pre-recorded message. In 2020, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) received 2.8 million consumer complaints about robocalls. Offering solutions to robocalling and associated fraudulent business practices, computerized mitigation platforms are an integral part of the solution. Platforms that are focused on actionable systems to disrupt unsolicited and potentially criminal phone calls help telecom service providers and industry regulators. Issues of whether one-size-fits-all developments are sufficient to be effective across the spectrum need to be addressed, and whether a single telecom network operator working unilaterally with a third-party platform could compromise desired or mandatory industry-wide standards. Robocall Mitigation Market Development According to the latest worldwide market study by Jun

Secure Digital Workspace Apps Enable the Future Enterprise

In early 2020, as the world responded to the COVID-19 pandemic disruption, many organizations were forced to rapidly transform their communications networks and IT infrastructure to support an unprecedented shift to remote work. Before the pandemic, approximately 38 percent of employees were remote full-time or had a flexible work arrangement where they split time between home and office locations. During the pandemic, the percentage of remote workers that CIOs had to support reached almost 72 percent. Future Enterprise Technology Market Development Enterprise leaders have been forced to adapt to a new state, shifting from traditional office-based operations to distributed workforce environments that must still provide the same level of connectivity, security, and efficiency across the organization. According to the latest worldwide market study by International Data Corporation (IDC), addressing connectivity across geographies and transforming networks to become more virtual and agile
