Outlook on the Cable Operator Global Market to 2026

Dublin, Aug. 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Cable Operator Market by Technology, Residential Services (Wireless, Internet, Entertainment, Security, Home Automation, and IoT based Apps), SMB and Enterprise Applications 2021 – 2026” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This report evaluates cable MSO ecosystem players, technologies, solutions, and market opportunities. This includes traditional residential and SMB services as well as the broader B2B market for fixed network providers, IoT market opportunities, wireless/mobility and other consumer services. The report evaluates these market opportunities and provides forecasts for every major sub-segment from 2021 through 2026. The report also evaluates the impact of 5G and edge computing on cable MSO network operators.

The report also assesses the cable MSO business service environment, landscape, and investment strategies such as the impact and opportunities surrounding developments with Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS). Looking beyond simply the migration from coaxial cable to fiber networks, the report takes into consideration important technical matters such as cable MSO converged IP/MPLS network architectures, IoT networks, and functionality.

Select Report Findings:

  • Wireless carriers will lose the battle for residential ISP services

  • Cable MSOs have a key role in consumer IoT and connected homes

  • OTT service providers are at a competitive disadvantage to Cable MSOs

  • Overall cable MSO B2B services will grow at 12.5% CAGR during the study period

  • Strategic focus of cable MSOs is optimal infrastructure and ensuring high-quality services

  • Successful cable MSOs will successfully leverage Multi-Access Edge Computing infrastructure

The report also evaluates how these technical considerations relate to market opportunities such as cable MSO IoT vertical coverage. The report also evaluates the impact of artificial intelligence on cable MSO providers. In addition, the report also provides a summation with conclusions and recommendations for all industry constituents.

Cellular network operators will go head-to-head with cable companies for many of their B2B services including business Internet and backhaul solutions. This is seen as a substantial strategic issue for MSOs since 2019 and will continue for the foreseeable future. Accordingly, purchasers of this report will also receive 5G Market Assessment: Vendor Strategies, Technology, and Infrastructure Outlook and Application Forecasts at no additional cost.

The term multiple-system operator (MSO) refers to a network operator of multiple cable or direct-broadcast satellite television systems. We use the terminology cable MSO in this report as MSOs are predominantly fixed connection providers that utilize fiber and largely cable for connectivity to homes and businesses. This category includes residential Internet, Voice over IP (VoIP), TV, and security services as well as a variety of business services.

Cable MSOs such as Cox Communications and Charter Communications have provided SMB services for a long time. With the advent of the Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) business model, many cable MSOs have launched consumer wireless offerings as an MVNO. More recently, cable MSO providers seek to leverage their assets to offer various Internet of Things (IoT) related applications and services.

In terms of IoT related services, cable MSO companies hold a key role in connected home applications and services including home automation. Service areas include home security (monitoring, access control, automated lighting, etc.), connected appliances (refrigerator, washer/dryer, whole house vacuum, etc.), HVAC systems, irrigation systems, and entertainment including TV service, video on demand, and competition with Over-the-Top (OTT) service providers.

One of the ways that cable MSOs can differentiate themselves versus OTT providers is to become one themselves by leveraging telecom APIs. In fact, there are a few good arguments for cable companies using the OTT model only for wireless service rather than a traditional MVNO model.

On the business to business (B2B) front, traditional cable MSOs have new competition from Google Fiber as well as other companies seeking to provide high-speed fixed network connectivity. Due to the commercial introduction of 5G, and more specifically 5G New Radio (5GNR), cable MSO providers will have new competition from wireless carriers for connectivity, especially for enterprise communications. More specifically, 5GNR uses millimeter-wave RF propagation, which enables both high capacity and low latency data transport as a competitive offering to fiber and cable.
