REDWOOD CITY, Calif., March 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Dell'Oro Group, the
trusted source for market information about the networking and
telecommunications industries, announced today that while the overall Carrier
IP Telephony market revenues declined 5% versus the year-ago period, sales of
IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) Core systems were through-the-roof. IMS sales
were driven by operator capital spending on current as well as planned
launches of the new Voice Over Long Term Evolution (VoLTE) service.

"VoLTE is creating both opportunities and disruption in equipment spending
patterns. We expect a significant increase in VoLTE services in 2013, with as
many as twenty operators carrying native Internet Protocol voice from handsets
by year-end," said analyst Chris DePuy. "While IMS and Wireless Application
Server spending accelerated in 2012, we expect further spending will be
stimulated by the availability of VoLTE-capable handsets in the next several
months. Spending on certain wireline voice projects has been postponed as
operators prioritize on wireless voice systems upgrades."

The overall Carrier IP Telephony market, which includes devices used to serve
both circuit switched subscribers and Voice Over IP (VoIP) subscribers,
reached revenues of just under $2 billion.
