Carrier VoIP/IMS Market Up 31 Percent Worldwide

By Johanne Torres, TMCnet Contributing Editor

"Worldwide service provider VoIP market increased 31 percent year-over-year driven by strong media gateway and softswitch sales," according to Synergy Research Group's Q2 2006 Service Provider VoIP Market Share report.
Specifically, researchers found that the U.S. contributed the strongest growth of 12.8 percent by region, followed by APAC and EMEA with growth rates of 8.4 and 6.0 percent, respectively.
"The carrier VoIP market continues to evolve with strong momentum," said Synergy Research Group analyst Ryan Olsen in a statement released on Wednesday. "Synergy believes this will accelerate as Carriers migrate to IMS, providing ample opportunity to those equipment vendors that have invested early in this architectural migration."
According to the report, the VoIP media gateway market grew 30.1 percent year-over-year and 13.5 percent sequentially. The report also revealed that high density media gateways grew 10.5 percent year-over-year. Analysts identified Cisco, Siemens (News - Alert) and Sonus as the top five media gateway market share leaders posting the strongest growth quarter-over-quarter growing 171.0, 21.3 and 9.2 percent, respectively.
In the report, softswitch sales showed a growth of 31.8 percent year-over-year and 7.8 percent sequentially. Analysts identified Alcatel (News - Alert), Italtel, Netcentrex (News - Alert) and Siemens as the top five softswitch market share leaders posting the strongest growth quarter-over-quarter growing 57.9, 17.1, 3.7 and 2.1 percent, respectively.
