Huawei claims top spot in IP DSLAM market

Basing its claim on the fact that it now serves 50 million DSL customers worldwide, Huawei is promoting itself as the leader in IP DSLAM technology. This report explains how Huawei justifies its claim...

  Huawei has now announced that its broadband access products and solutions are now serving 50 million DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) customers worldwide. According to the latest report published by Infonetics, a data networking and telecom market research consulting firm, as of 1Q07, Huawei is still ranked number one in the global IP DSLAM (Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer) market.

In early 2001, Huawei launched the First commercial IP DSLAM product, accelerating the transformation to IP access network. Following that, Huawei rolled out FE (Fast Ethernet) and GE (Gigabit Ethernet)-based large-capacity IP DSLAM, which enabled operators to construct flattened, high-bandwidth, future-oriented broadband networks.

Last year, Huawei unveiled the industry's first terabit GPON access system and FTTx solution, building on a situation whereby for the four consecutive years from 2003, Huawei grabbed the largest market share in IP DSLAM. The result is Huawei's claim that it successfully serves 50 million DSLAM customers around the world. This means that Huawei now supplies 25% of the world's overall DSL base of 200 million DSL customers. This total has in fact just been announced by a standardisation organisation in the industry, the DSL Forum.

By the end of last year, to support its market position, Huawei had devoted more than 2,000 engineers to the R&D of access technology, and had shipped more than 120 million DSLAM and MSAN ports to customers in 85 countries and regions around the world, through carriers such as China Telecom, China Netcom, BT and KPN.
