Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Telecom team said, One of the key growth drivers of the Global Carrier VoIP market is the high demand for session border controllers. The high demand for SBCs clearly shows an operator shift toward all-IP networks thereby leading to high growth of the SBCs segment of the Global Carrier VoIP market. However, one drawback of operators shifting toward all-IP networks is the decline in the sales of trunk media gateways equipment.
According to the report, the integration of technologies such as IP phones and digital PBX systems led to the creation of IP-PBX systems, which transformed the legacy communication system into an IP-based communication system. One of the major trends being witnessed in the Global Carrier VoIP market is the convergence of services. Demand for converged networks for running voice, data, and video on the same IP infrastructure along with lower bandwidth costs and ease of maintenance is compelling operators and enterprises across the globe to adopt VoIP services.
