1. In-Stat Releases Study of VoDSL Gateway Market
Cahner’s In-Stat has released a study entitled VoDSL Gateways ñ Market Realities Curb the Hype that examines VoDSL products and applications and provides 5-year shipment and revenue forecasts for North American and international markets.

The firm finds that the market for VoDSL gateways totaled $51 million last year and that it has failed to rise out of its infancy this year. The study suggests that there are too many suppliers for the size of the current marketplace and that product lines are already beginning to evolve before widespread deployment has taken place.

The study cites the leading VoDSL equipment vendors in 2000 as Jetstream, CopperCom, TollBridge, and Accelerated Networks.

The report goes for $2,495.
