The global Ethernet Over Coax (EOC) equipment and subscribers market is anticipated to witness a surge in demand owing to increasing data transfer requirements worldwide. Further, Ethernet Over Coax (EoC) offers benefits such as enhanced connectivity and faster data transfer. Growing bandwidth requirements are also anticipated to drive market growth. Surge in number of Video on Demand (VoD) applications is expected to contribute significantly to market growth. Further, Ethernet is increasingly being used in traffic control applications. Additionally, modern utility and industrial sites are increasingly using Intelligent Electronic Devices (IED). These devices need to work in close concert by using high-speed links such as Ethernet. This has significantly contributed to network infrastructure remodeling by reducing complexities and simplifying data transfer.
Ethernet over coax (EoC) equipment provides benefits such as backward compatibility, expandability, and flexibility at a reduced cost. Increasing adoption of next-generation IP based networks is expected to drive the market over the forecast period. Ethernet is increasingly being used as a ubiquitous protocol for LANs. Increasing multimedia traffic from consumer and business users is further anticipated to contribute to market growth. EoC provides benefits such as full-duplex and synchronous data transfers over existing coaxial cables. Further, use of existing coaxial cables results in reduced cost. EoC provides 100base transmission over the existing coaxial cables. Growing use of EoC in IP camera and IPTV may contribute to the growth of EoC equipment and subscribers market.
EoC provides an alternative solution to service providers to allow residential subscribers to stay connected and enjoy value-added services. EoC takes advantage of existing residential coaxial cables for efficient installation and provides high-performance services for demanding applications. Ethernet provides enhanced interconnection among telecom equipment such as routers to routers, routers to optical gear, and DSLAMs to routers.
Challenges related to setting up Ethernet on heterogeneous networks may hamper the EoC equipment and subscribers’ market growth. Rapidly advancing technologies leading to the absolution of existing technologies may force consumers to refrain from investing in EoC Equipment. Additionally, challenges related to interoperability may further hamper market demand.
EoC equipment is widely used in video surveillance, residential, and hotel applications, traffic control, satellite cabling, pipe and tunnel inspection, deep-sea exploration, rail system monitoring, satellite cabling, radar systems, and other modern industries. Increasing demand from these industries may significantly contribute to the growth of the EoC equipment and subscribers market. EoC enables baseband RF and modulated RF data transmission over coaxial cables. Baseband RF transmission can be achieved over passive systems, whereas modulated RF requires active systems for transmission.
North America and Europe are expected to account for major market share over the forecast period. Asia Pacific regions such as India and China may contribute significantly to market share owing to growing information technology services in these regions.
Key players in the ethernet over coax equipment and subscribers market are Qualcomm Inc., Cisco Systems Inc. Actelis Network, ADVA Optical Networking, Alcatel-Lucent, ASUSTeK Computer Inc., Dell, Inc., Ericson, Huawei Technologies, MRV Communications Inc., RAD Data Communications, Telco Systems, Tellabs Inc., Juniper Networks Inc., Fujitsu Ltd., and NextGen Networks. In March 2012, Qualcomm Inc. launched time division multiple access (TDMA) software for EoC applications. The company also launched a QCA6411 chipset solution. The solution provides comprehensive, broadband access solutions for multi-system operators across China. Additionally, the EoC software provides a variety of critical features for HomePlug AV and P1901-based EoC solutions. Cisco System Inc.’s DigiStarEoC system is designed to combine cable television (CATV) signals and digital traffic based on Ethernet for transmission to subscriber homes. DigistarEoC systems meet cable operator’s IP interactive service requirements for Multiple Dwelling Units (MDU) applications. Additionally, it also supports VoD service requests and subscriber service differentiation. The company offers Ethernet over Coax Management (ECEM) system enables remote monitoring and management of all EoC master and EoC endpoint in the network. ECEM is based on Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and can configure device parameters, monitor device status as well as upgrade firmware. These solutions help in reducing costs and improving management efficiency.

"The quality of research they have done for us has been excellent."
In contrast to its related industries like consumer electronics and semiconductors, the data center and communications infrastructure industry is expected to be more buoyant with continued strategic investments made to support the increased network traffic and data usage for remote working during the lockdown phase. From school closures necessitating students to use virtual offerings (Google Classroom ) to the governments using business analytics services (Power BI) for communicating virus updates, the demand for communication services and related infrastructure has witnessed an unprecedented rise amidst the global pandemic. Digital services including telemedicine are expected to remain popular even after the pandemic is contained, thereby ensuring strong growth in the communication infrastructure industry. The report will account for Covid19 as a key market contributor.
