Infonetics: VoLTE Fuels 37% Year-Over-Year Growth in Q1 Carrier VoIP and IMS market; Alcatel-Lucent Rises to Top

CAMPBELL, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

Market research firm Infonetics Research released vendor market share and forecasts from its 1st quarter (1Q14) Service Provider VoIP and IMS Equipment and Subscribers report. (Full analysis published by May 30.)

ANALYST NOTE

"Voice over LTE (VoLTE) continues to positively impact the service provider VoIP and IMS equipment market, though we look for the market to slow this year as operators commercially launch services and draw down capacity built over the past year," notes Diane Myers, principal analyst for VoIP, UC, and IMS at Infonetics Research.

Myers continues: "Already this year we have seen AT&T, PCCW/HKT, and other operators launch VoLTE services, and NTT (News - Alert) DoCoMo is set to do so in June. There will be additional launches in 2014 by large and small providers alike that will hit the bottom line, but mobile does not completely dominate the picture. Spending on Class 5 replacement and voice over broadband (VoBB) and SIP trunking expansion will continue."

VOIP AND IMS MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  • Worldwide service provider VoIP and IMS equipment revenue totaled $992 million in 1Q14, an increase of 37% from 1Q13, but a sequential decline of 9%
    • Most segments were down on a sequential basis following a strong 4Q13
  • The core IMS and voice application server segment posted the strongest growth in 1Q14, continuing to be driven by VoLTE activity in the large North American and Asian markets
  • All regions are up on a year-over-year basis in 1Q14, with Asia Pacific and North America forming the foundation for the IMS rise due to activity from mobile operators
  • The standout vendor in 1Q14 is Alcatel-Lucent (News - Alert), rising to the top due to strong growth of core IMS and voice application server revenue, particularly in North America
