Dell'Oro: IMS Core, Session Border Controller and Voice Application Servers See Year-On-Year Growth
Aug 23, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Dell'Oro Group, a source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, announced that while Carrier IP Telephony market revenues declined 12 percent overall versus the year-ago period, sales of IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) Core, Session Border Controller (SBC) and Voice Application Server (VAS) systems grew 26 percent.
According to a release, on a combined basis, Genband and Alcatel-Lucent now represent over one-quarter of the SBC market's revenue.
"Wireless network construction activities are now a major driver to Session Border Controller sales. As wireless projects have emerged from the planning stage and have begun generating vendor revenue, it is clear that service providers have been broadening their supplier relationships for critical carrier voice equipment such as the SBC," said Chris DePuy, Vice President of Carrier IP Telephony research at Dell'Oro Group.
The overall Carrier IP Telephony market, which includes devices used to serve both circuit switched subscribers and Voice over IP (VoIP) subscribers, reached nearly $1.4 billion.
The Dell'Oro Group Carrier IP Telephony Quarterly Report offers complete, in-depth coverage of the market with tables covering manufacturers' revenue, shipments, and average selling prices for both wireline and wireless voice core markets.
