"In the short-term, there are likely to be additional declines in cable modem equipment revenue, however there is plenty of room for future growth," said Paul Baranello, a Senior Analyst at Dell'Oro Group. "There are two primary reasons why we expect equipment revenue to grow long-term. Firstly, the Service Providers we have spoken with indicated their desire to advance high-speed data service from the early-adopter stage to a mainstream service. Dell'Oro Group predicts that the worldwide cable modem subscriber base will increase from 22 million at the end of 2002 to 77 million by the end of 2007. Secondly, we believe that Service Providers will begin replacing old equipment in 2004 and beyond with new devices that can provide higher bandwidth and additional features. For example, a Service Provider may eventually be willing to replace their installed base of DOCSIS (Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification) A cable modem standard from the CableLabs research consortium (www.cablelabs.com), which provides equipment certification for interoperability. 1.0 or 1.1 equipment with new DOCSIS 2.0 equipment that can deliver higher upstream speeds. As the high-speed data market matures, Service Providers will become interested in any technological advantage they can acquire over their competitors."
