VoIP and UC Services and Subscribers report, which tracks service providers
and their voice over IP (VoIP) and unified communications (UC) services

ANALYST NOTE

“The VoIP services market is on track with our expectations for 2013,” reports
Diane Myers, principal analyst for VoIP, UC and IMS at Infonetics Research.
“Residential VoIP services make up the majority of revenue, but growth is
being fueled by business services as SIP trunking and cloud unified
communications continue to expand and find broader adoption with enterprises
of all sizes.”

VOIP AND UC SERVICES MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  *In the first half of 2013 (1H13), global residential and business VoIP
    services revenue rose 3%, to $33 billion
  *Worldwide business VoIP service revenue is forecast by Infonetics to grow
    at a 7% CAGR from 2012 to 2017, compared to a 3% CAGR for residential/SOHO

  *Hosted PBX/UC grew the most of any VoIP service in 1H13 as businesses,

    viable alternative to premises-based solutions
