Key takeaways from the second quarter:

  oEvolved Packet Core (EPC) session shipments to North America comprise the
    majority of total EPC shipments. EPC systems are used to manage
    subscriber traffic that originates from LTE radio networks.
  oLTE subscribers in North America represent the majority of worldwide total
    of subscribers.
  oAlcatel-Lucent's exposure to the North American EPC market enabled it to
    grow share rapidly to the number one revenue rank in the second quarter of
    2013.

"We are seeing considerable volatility in the Evolved Packet Core segment on a
revenue basis. Last quarter, Cisco regained the number two position. This
quarter, 2Q13, Alcatel-Lucent's revenue share in EPC rose significantly,
propelling it to the number one position," said Chris DePuy, Vice President of
Wireless Packet Core Research at Dell'Oro Group. "However, if we look at
session shipment patterns over the past three quarters we see a more stable
picture, with Ericsson retaining its position as the leading EPC vendor," he
added.
