Broadband Gateway Revenues will Surpass $10 Billion

The residential gateway opportunity continues to rise in the broadband customer premises equipment (CPE) market. The upside is primarily due to telco service providers favoring gateways over modems, since they fulfill consumer demand and promise greater future revenue possibilities.

As a result of the latest market study by In-Stat, they now forecast 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 at In-Stat.

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 gateway features, but also to present possible future service add-ons and to increase the broadband service provider's ability to manage their customer's home network.

Additional findings from the In-Stat market study 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 percent over the next five years.

- Tellabs, Motorola, and Alcatel-Lucent are leaders in FTTH CPE.

Worldwide Contactless Payments will Exceed $1 Trillion

There's a huge upside opportunity for digital payment innovation in America. As of December 2017, Juniper Research estimates that only 9 percent of the total payment cards in circulation within the U.S. market was contactless-enabled -- this translates into just over 100 million cards. While this is a significant installed base -- around 13 percent of total chip cards issued in the U.S. market -- Juniper estimates that only 5.5 percent of the cards were actually used to make contactless offline point-of-sale purchases in 2017. This translates into about 6 million contactless cards used for payments. That's relatively low in comparison with more advanced markets such as Canada (60 million) and the UK (108 million). Contactless Payment Market Development Juniper Research forecasts that driven by payment cards and mobile wallets, in-store contactless payments will reach $2 trillion by 2020 -- that represents 15 percent of the total point of sale transactions.

Digital Identity Verification Market to Reach $16.7B

As more enterprise organizations embrace the ongoing transition to digital business transformation, CIOs and CTOs are adopting new technologies that enable the secure identification of individuals within their key stakeholder communities. A "digital identity" is a unique representation of a person. It enables individuals to prove their physical identity during transactions. Moreover, a digital identity is a set of validated digital attributes and credentials for online interactions -- similar to a person's identity within the physical world. Individuals can use a 'digital ID' to be verified through an authorized digital channel. Usually issued or regulated by a national ID scheme, a digital identity serves to identify a unique person online or offline. Digital Identity Systems Market Development Complementary to more traditional forms of identification, digital identity verification systems can enhance the authenticity, security, confidentiality, and efficiency of

Software-Defined Infrastructure: The Platform of Choice

As more organizations adapt to a hybrid working model for their distributed workforce, enterprise CIOs and CTOs are tasked with delivering new productivity-enabling applications, while also seeking ways to effectively reduce IT cost, complexity, and risk. Traditional IT hardware infrastructure is evolving to more software-based solutions. The worldwide software-defined infrastructure (SDI) combined software market reached $12.17 billion during 2020 -- that's an increase of 5 percent over 2019, according to the latest market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). The market grew faster than other core IT technologies. The three technology pillars within the SDI market are: software-defined compute (53 percent of market value), software-defined storage controller (36 percent), and software-defined networking (11 percent). "Software-defined infrastructure solutions have long been popular for companies looking to eliminate cost, complexity, and risk within their data cente
