Infonetics Research: Carrier VoIP and IMS Equipment Market up 8% Year-over-Year on the Back of IMS



  Infonetics Research: Carrier VoIP and IMS Equipment Market up 8%
  Year-over-Year on the Back of IMS

Business Wire

CAMPBELL, Calif. -- November 19, 2012

Market research firm Infonetics Research today released excerpts from its 3rd
quarter 2012 (3Q12)  Service Provider VoIP and IMS Equipment and Subscribers
market share, size, and forecasts report. (Detailed analysis will be published
December 3.)

ANALYST NOTE

“With solid third quarter results, the carrier VoIP and IMS market is on track
for positive year-over-year growth due to a handful of variables that are
coming together,” notes Diane Myers, principal analyst for VoIP, UC, and IMS
at Infonetics Research. “First, we’re entering the long-tail of the legacy
softswitch and trunking gateway market, with opportunities for early equipment
replacement and new deals that will help slow declines and provide
stabilization. Second, IMS deployments continue to grow, and there are pockets
of VoLTE and wireless spending.”

“Given these factors, and based on our fourth quarter projections,” Myers
continues, “We’re anticipating that 2012 will provide the first annual growth
in the carrier VoIP and IMS market in over four years.”

3Q12 CARRIER VOIP AND IMS MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  * The global service provider VoIP and IMS market was down 4% sequentially
    in 3Q12, but is up 8% from the year-ago quarter (3Q11)
  * Asia Pacific and Latin America carried the VoIP and IMS market in 3Q12,
    each posting high single-digit sequential growth and strong double-digit
    year-over-year increases
  * Huawei strengthened its lead in the overall VoIP and IMS market, now at
    around 1/4 market share, through solid sales across its IMS and NGN VoIP
    product lines
  * In the session border controller (SBC) segment, Sonus jumped to over 20%
    market share in the quarter, solidifying their position as a strong number
    two after Acme Packet
  * In the IMS market, it was another tight battle in 3Q12 between Ericsson,
    Huawei and Nokia Siemens Networks as we see continued expansion within
    existing IMS networks
