|27 августа 2010|
Infonetics Research released its second quarter Service Provider VoIP Equipment and Subscribers and IMS Equipment and Subscribers market share and forecast reports and reports that session border controller (SBC) sales are responsible for growth in the VoIP equipment market.Market research firm Infonetics Research released its second quarter (2Q10) Service Provider VoIP Equipment and Subscribers and IMS Equipment and Subscribers market share and forecast reports.
"The session border controller (SBC) market is on fire, with worldwide revenue up 27% sequentially and up 70% from this quarter last year, a signal that IP-to-IP connectivity continues to overtake IP-to-TDM connectivity. SBCs and media servers will be the main growth engines of the carrier VoIP equipment market for 2010," predicts Diane Myers, directing analyst for service provider VoIP and IMS at Infonetics Research.
Myers adds: "The IMS market also is experiencing strong and healthy growth, driven by the continued adoption of fixed-line VoIP services and key operators in Asia Pacific and EMEA that are beginning their fixed-line network transformation utilizing IMS."

- The total service provider VoIP equipment market, including trunk media gateways, SBCs, media servers, softswitches, and voice application servers, increased to $564.7 million in 2Q10, up 5.3% from the previous quarter
- Worldwide, revenue for every product category except trunk media gateways grew sequentially in 2Q10
Still, all segments but SBCs are down year-over-year (from 2Q09 to 2Q10)
IMS MARKET HIGHLIGHTS
- The worldwide IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) equipment market, including IMS core equipment and application servers, jumped 33.5% in 2Q10 over 1Q10
- In 2Q10, Huawei, Ericsson, and Nokia Siemens Networks recorded solid IMS sales, and Alcatel-Lucent and ZTE posted the largest revenue growth over 1Q10
