G.fast Chips to Usher in ‘DSL’s ‘Gigabit’ Era
The G.fast standard has ushered in new technologies that have taken the efficiency and speed of copper wire, used in transmitting data over short
distances, to a never-before level. G.fast chips are commonly referred to as components that will fuel DSL’s ‘gigabit era’. It is little wonder then that
the demand for G.fast chips is on the rise, especially in the backdrop of a palpable increase in broadband connections worldwide.
Latest market research has shown that though the market for G.fast chips is a diversified one, it will still achieve remarkable growth over the next few
Fiber’s High-Cost Attributes Keep Copper in the Game, Auguring Well for G.fast Chips
While fiber features in the latest broadband infrastructure, it is still too expensive to be taken to the home. It is here that copper wires as an
alternative over short distances come into play. Because copper-based broadband tech promises to be higher on the longevity quotient, it is likely to be
widely used in the coming years. Although alternatives in the form of FTTH are available, these alternatives are still comparatively costly as compared to
The greatest driver for the G.fast chips market is the fact that broadband internet is witnessing a
staggering rate of adoption worldwide. Research reveals that the broadband adoption rate will peak by 2025, when most people worldwide would have shifted
over to this type of internet connection.
Worldwide Spike In Broadband Internet Users to Drive Demand for G.fast Chips
Companies in the broadband market are already gearing up for this massive explosion of user numbers. The G.fast chips market thus stands a fair chance of
benefiting from this trend. In the meanwhile, record broadband internet users are being reported from both developed and developing economies. South Korea,
for instance, has the highest broadband users in terms of the proportion of broadband-connected users (95%) and average bandwidth (an impressive 24.6
The scenario is also changing in developing countries such as India, where the broadband infrastructure is being strengthened and will thus create a demand
for G.fast chips. Surprisingly, the United States trails behind East Asia when it comes to speed and penetration of broadband. It ranks at par with Nordic
countries. Within the U.S. some regions report a higher penetration of broadband than the others. Delaware is an example of the former; the state in fact
ranks ahead of all other states in terms of average broadband speed and connectivity. The Arkansas is reported as being the state with the slowest adoption
of broadband in the United States.
G.fast Chips to be a US$2.9 billion Market by 2020, Say Reports
The main advantage that G.fast chips carry is that they help accentuate the performance of copper infrastructure, which is currently widely used in
telecommunications networks. Because copper provides connectivity so easily, it will likely continue to retain its standing as the backbone of wireless
data transport over short distances. And, in the foreseeable future, copper-supported broadband will hold on to its dominant position.
The G.fast chips market is thus described as being a very dynamic and compelling market. The role of G.fast is especially interesting because this
technology helps leverage obsolete copper-based wireless data transmission infrastructure. The G.fast chips market is currently an arena where
technological innovation and breakthroughs are the key competitive differentiators. Hence, it more companies will invest in evolving platforms, steering
the G.fast chips market to US$2.9 billion by 2020, from its 2014 value of US$31 million.
