Asia-Pac broadband subs to hit 182M in 2009
AUGUST 14, 2009 -- According to industry analyst firm Frost & Sullivan (search Lightwave for Frost & Sullivan) Asia Pacific's fixed broadband subscribers are expected to grow 17.3% to reach 182 million users by the end of 2009, clocking estimated billings of US$44.9 billion, a rise of 13.3% percent over 2008.Even as mobile broadband grows in tandem, analyst Adeel Najam expects fixed broadband uptake to continue. He attributes this to the various government initiatives in rolling out their national broadband ambitions such as Malaysia's high-speed broadband (HSBB) project, Australia's national broadband network (NBN), and Singapore's iN2015 masterplan. He also expects telcos in developing markets to continue deploying basic xDSL (digital subscriber line)infrastructure.By 2010 when most of the government-initiated projects are earmarked for full-scale roll-out, broadband users in Asia Pacific are expected to breach the 200 million mark, closing the year 2010 at 212.6 million.New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, "Asia-Pacific Fixed Broadband Market," finds that the broadband subscriber base in the region -- covering 14 Asia-Pacific countries including Japan -- will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14.1% annually (2009-2014) to reach 342.9 million subscribers by end of 2014. In that same year, the region's household broadband penetration would have risen to 37.2%, from only about 18% percent in 2008, with revenues estimated at close to US$69 billion."The bulk of bandwidth growth and network roll-outs in the next few years will be driven by fiber-to-the-node [FTTN] deployments aided mainly by government spending on national high-speed broadband projects," Najam says, adding that xDSL will however remain the dominant platform in developing markets.According to Najam, "Consumer appetite for broadband will be spurred by the demand for high-throughput value-added services such as IPTV and video-on-demand."He says that services such as Web 2.0, social networking, file sharing, and online gaming, as well as falling PC prices and availability of low-cost netbooks have also added impetus toward broadband consumption.In 2008, the top six Asia-Pac countries with the highest household broadband penetration rates were South Korea -- said to be one of the highest in the world -- at 92.8%, Hong Kong 85%, Singapore 78.5%, Taiwan 66%, Australia 63.7%, and Japan 62.7%. The remaining eight markets have household broadband penetration rates of less than 60%.By number of subscribers, in 2008 China had the most fixed broadband users with 83.4 million (53.8% of the region's total subscriber base), followed by Japan with 30 million and South Korea with 15.5 million.Looking forward, Najam dispels the threat of mobile broadband to fixed broadband services. He believes that both these access services need to coexist. "In the age of convergence and multiplay services, both wireless and wireline broadband should be viewed as complementing technology to offer subscribers with blended services."While mobile broadband has significantly lower throughput than fixed access, it provides residential users with the convenience of 'on-the-go' connectivity," he adds.
ADTRAN wins new order for multiservice access platform
AUGUST 14, 2009 -- Mid-Maine Communications and Pine Tree Networks, a division of Internet and telephone service provider Otelco, has selected ADTRAN's (search Lightwave for ADTRAN)Total Access 5000 multiservice access and aggregation platform (MSAP) for broadband digital loop carrier and Ethernet-in-the-first mile applications.The Total Access 5000 is an Ethernet-based MSAP is designed to support voice, data, and video needs over any copper- or fiber-based facilities. According to ADTRAN, it supports many broadband and Carrier Ethernet services on a common Ethernet backplane and transport network."We were looking for a flexible solution that would allow us to take advantage of the efficiencies of Ethernet and begin the migration to next-generation services for our residential and business customers," says Robert Ashley, director of capital budgets and planning for Mid-Maine Communications and Pine Tree Networks. "The plan was to deploy equipment from several vendors until we found the Total Access 5000. Having a single platform to deploy both Carrier Ethernet and broadband services significantly minimizes our training, spares, and footprint. ADTRAN is really offering something no other vendor can with the Total Access 5000."
ADTRAN supplies Walnut Communications with multiservice access platform
JULY 27, 2009 -- Walnut Communications, serving west central Iowa, has selected the Total Access 5000 multiservice access and aggregation platform (MSAP) from ADTRAN Inc. (search Lightwave for ADTRAN), provider of next-generation networking products, for next-generation access and Ethernet transport throughout its network.Walnut will utilize ADTRAN's enhanced Pseudowire Emulation Edge to End (PWE3) technology via the MSAP for TDM service delivery and Ethernet transport over fiber. This will allow Walnut Communications to transition its access infrastructure to a next-generation architecture, while maintaining the ability to fully support TDM T1 applications where needed. Walnut will also leverage the Total Access 5000's eSHDSL capabilities to provide high-bandwidth services to local businesses using Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) for Ethernet service delivery."Our plan was to select an Ethernet-based multiservice platform to start our transformation from legacy TDM to an all-Ethernet network," says Brian Trader, IP technician, Walnut Communications. "There were a number of legacy SONET-based systems as well as Ethernet-only systems, which did not fit the bill. ADTRAN's Total Access 5000 was the only true Ethernet MSAP that addressed all of our needs in a carrier-class chassis design. With the Total Access 5000 we can address hi-caps, business needs, and eventually add POTS and ADSL2+, as we displace our legacy network. Being able to support all of these services from a single platform saves us operational expenses over the long haul."The MSAP bridges the gap between existing and next-generation networks. With an all-Ethernet core, the ADTRAN platform supports both legacy and emerging service interfaces over copper and fiber. The scalable Ethernet architecture allows carriers to use the Total Access 5000 to more economically address both legacy and next-generation services while providing a seamless path toward a converged network."Walnut Communications needed a unique and innovative solution to help them transition to next-generation technologies without stranding an established customer base, and ADTRAN delivered with the Total Access 5000," says P. Steven Locke, vice president of sales, service providers, ADTRAN Carrier Networks Division.
