Worldwide sales of copper-based carrier Ethernet access platforms rose 52% year-on-year to $253 million in 2008, according to the new Carrier Ethernet Access Platform (CEAP) Quarterly Market Tracker.

CEAP Tracker author Stan Hubbard, who is also a senior analyst at Heavy Reading, said E-o-bonded copper pair platform sales were up 4% quarter-on-quarter following a strong third quarter in 2008, and E-o-TDM access product revenues slipped only 1% sequentially after posting modest growth in the same period.

Heavy Reading estimates that the market for combined E-o-bonded copper pair platform sales is likely to surpass $400 million by 2012 while the larger E-o-fiber demarcation/access switch market is also likely to record significant growth over the next several years.
