Arris Rises, Cisco Falls In Set-Top Revenue Rankings

Set-top box revenues rose about 5% in the second quarter, but not every supplier came out smelling light a rose, ABI Research said in a recently released report.

Arris, which combined with Motorola Home last April, was a “clear winner” in the quarter, generating $711 million in the category, a 60% year-over-year increase (pro-forma based on the combined Arris/Motorola Home from the start of 2013. 

Humax also saw set-top revenues climb 30% in the second quarter, according to ABI.

Cisco Systems, meanwhile, brought in $332 million, a fall-off of about 30%.

“We continue to see Cisco-NDS as innovative in the middleware market; at the same time, it has lost on the set-top box front what it gained in experience from the acquisition of NDS,” ABI Research practice director Sam Rosen said, in a statement.
