Infonetics: Exploding Mobile Device Traffic, Acquisitions Heat Up Diameter Signaling Controller Market



  Infonetics: Exploding Mobile Device Traffic, Acquisitions Heat Up Diameter
  Signaling Controller Market

Business Wire

CAMPBELL, Calif. -- January 31, 2014

Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its
just-published market size and forecast report on Diameter signaling
controllers, which handle and secure the exponentially increasing Diameter
signaling traffic on service provider networks triggered by mobile devices and
machines.

Expected strong growth in the Diameter signaling controller (DSC) market is
attracting vendors from varying backgrounds, from telecom hardware and
software vendors such as Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, Huawei, and Oracle, to
traditional signaling vendors (Ulticom), pure play vendors (Diametriq), IP
experts (F5), and vendors in the policy and control space (Amdocs, Comptel,
Openet).

ANALYST NOTES

“The Diameter signaling control market is still relatively new, but in 2013 it
matured through the success of a broader range of vendors and strong growth
worldwide, with revenue more than doubling over the previous year,” notes
Diane Myers, principal analyst for VoIP, UC, and IMS at Infonetics Research.

Myers adds: “The vendor landscape continues to shift with acquisitions and new
entrants. Oracle, via its acquisition of Tekelec and Acme Packet, is the
Diameter signaling control market leader in 2013, followed very closely by F5
and Huawei. Ericsson and Huawei have made significant pushes into the Diameter
space and should be viewed as formidable threats. As exploding traffic from
mobile devices, smartphones, and machines further vexes mobile operators, we
expect competition in the Diameter signaling controller market to intensify in
2014.”

DIAMETER SIGNALING CONTROL MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  * Infonetics forecasts global Diameter signaling controller revenue to grow
    at a 54% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) through 2018
  * The #1 use case for Diameter signaling control remains centralized
    routing, but roaming via Diameter Edge Agent (DEA) is close behind, and
    policy and charging rules function (PCRF) binding continues to see
    significant activity
  * Key areas of diameter signaling controller product development in 2014
    include virtualization and a more widespread integration of interworking
    function (IWF)
  * North America controlled nearly 80% of the Diameter signaling controller
    market back in 2011, but Asia Pacific quickly caught up in 2012 and EMEA
    came close to parity by 2013 due to the significant ramping of LTE in
    these regions; Latin America is starting to show more activity as LTE
    expands there
