One of the advantages of media gateways and softswitches is cost, market intelligence In-Stat reports. With carrier networks moving to an entire IP environment, the cost for media gateways and softswitches has become more desireable due to their competitive pricing over traditional equipment.
The media gateways and Class 4 and 5 softswitches market will jump from $2.7 billion in 2005 to $8.4 billion in 2010, according to In-Stat. Officials noted that the interest in VoIP has caused an interest in circuit switching network.
"The drivers for this migration include not only cost savings for subscribers and network operators, but also the promise of new applications that will enrich the communication experience," said Daryl Schoolar, In-Stat analyst in a statement.
In-Stat also found the following in their latest report, titled "The China Anomaly: 2005 Media Gateway and Softswitch Market":
- Huawei acquired the largest market share for media gateway port shipments and Class 4 softswitch licenses for 2005; however, over half of those shipments were to domestic markets.
- Nortel (News - Alert) has the number one market share for both categories when not factoring in Huawei's domestic shipments.
