Multiscreen Video Dominates Home Networking

Infonetics_HomeNetChartAccording to Infonetics Research, the home networking industry is increasingly focused on multiscreen video.

In a statement, Infonetics analyst Jeff Heynen said, in part: "Operators in North America and Western Europe are deploying higher-end gateways and set-top boxes with integrated wireless and wired technologies to distribute video to multiple devices in the home, driving a secondary market of MoCA set tops and HomePlug adapters."



  • In China, South East Asia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America, the focus of home networking is first on expanding WiFi coverage, then quickly shifting to distributing multiscreen video.


  • Globally, home networking device revenue totaled $5.4 billion in the first half of 2013 (1H13), up 6% from the second half of 2012 (2H12).


  • MoCA devices, which ship primarily in North America, once again drove revenue growth.


  • Residential gateway revenue increased 7% in 1H13 from 2H12, as operators more heavily rely on residential gateways to deliver managed services.


  • Operator-provided residential gateways continue to cannibalize retail routers: Broadband router revenue and shipments declined in 1H13.
