Market watcher In-Stat forecasts that residential gateway shipments will surpass 5 crore units in 2011 with its gaining importance in the home networking infrastructure because service providers prefer such devices over other, similar networking devices.

"Many more telco service providers are supplying residential gateways instead of DSL broadband modems, not only for those customers requesting gateways, but also, at times, to create opportunities for future service add-ons and to better manage their customers' networks," says Vahid Dejwakh, industry analyst, In-Stat. "The residential gateway market continues its global dominance over routers, due to telco providers' preference for gateways over modems, because gateways fulfil consumer demand and promise greater revenue possibilities."

In-Stat also reports that total broadband customer-premises equipment (CPE) shipments to Asia Pacific are expected to increase from 31 per cent in 2010 to 36 per cent of all shipments in 2015. Yet residential gateway shipments are still expected to overtake broadband modem shipments in 2014 as more and more devices incorporate Wi-Fi and routing capabilities. Latin America, the Middle East and Africa and the rest of the world saw the highest growth rate of 10.4 per cent for 2010, according to In-Stat.

Also, Tellabs, Motorola, and Alcatel-Lucent are leaders in FTTH CPE, In-Stat reports.
