The market for VoIP switches is driven by the increasing demand for mobility. According to findings, a key factor contributing to the growth of this space is the reduced risk of vendor lock-in.

It spans across the Americas, the EMEA, and APAC regions in addition to covering the global softswitch market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years.  

In addition, analyst firm Infonetics Research (News - Alert) has also revealed that although the VoIP switch and IMS market was down four percent sequentially in 3Q12, it is touted as being up eight percent from the year-ago quarter (3Q11).

While Huawei (News - Alert) currently leads in the overall VoIP and IMS market, with around a 25 percent market share, this is primarily due to solid sales across its IMS and NGN VoIP product lines.
