DSLAM vendors to ship 89.1 mln ports by 2010

With Internet users needing faster connections for multimedia applications, the global market for DSLAMs will grow to 89.1 mln ports by the end of 2010, up from 76 mln in 2005, reports In-Stat. A combination of dial-up users moving to broadband and broadband users moving to higher-speed lines continues to create growth in the DSLAM market. Alcatel, with 28.4% of the market, was the leading vendor in 2005.
