Global FTTH/B forecasts: Quantifying the future of xPON and PtP architectures
Published: July 2012
As FTTH/B deployments continue to gather pace, an understanding of which operators will invest in which technologies is vital for any player in the fixed-broadband-access market.

Global five-year forecasts for EPON, GPON, 10GEPON, 10GPON, WDM-PON and PtP FTTH/B subscriber numbers for 129 operators in 58 countries with a detailed commentary on important trends driving the numbers.
FTTH/B deployments remain massively important for fixed-broadband operators and will see continued subscriber growth over the next five years. With detailed subscriber forecasts, operators and regulators can benchmark against different countries and vendors can determine which markets offer great potential for fiber broadband access.
But how are operators’ xPON and PtP technology choices underlying the FTTH/B market set to change in the future? To what extent will GPON continue its increase in subscriber numbers and how will EPON subscriber numbers change over the next five years? And what take-up and impact will emerging technologies, such as 10GPON, 10GEPON and WDM PON, have?
The fact that xPON and PTP subscriber numbers will see continued growth should not hide very significant regional variations, however. The report shows which markets will see the most significant growth and which fixed-line operators will be the most aggressive in their deployments.
Analytical commentary will explain the drivers and inhibitors of the growth in all major FTTH/B architectures and how these factors will differ across the globe and between different operators, based on forecasts for 129 operators in 58 countries.
