Service Providers Seek to Deploy VoIP Rapidly, Study Says

Johanne Torres, TMCnet Contributing Editor

According to a recent study conducted by research firm Dell' (News - Alert)Oro Group, service providers are seeking rapid deployment of VoIP services, as well as IMS.
"As service providers race to offer new VoIP services, most next-generation networks overlay the existing circuit switch networks," said Steve Raab, director of IP telephony research at Dell'Oro Group in a statement released today. "Initial IP Multimedia Subsystem (News - Alert) (IMS) networks will follow a similar overlay strategy enabling service providers to offer fixed-mobile-convergence and multimedia services rapidly, while carriers defer the complete network transformation from circuit switches to a fully VoIP network to future years."
The firm's study also revealed that sales of softswitches and media gateways are forecasted to double from $2.5 billion last year to $5.0 billion in 2010. Analysts believe that robust sales of Class 4 trunk networks drove the market for next-generation network equipment last year. The firm predicts that Class 5 subscriber systems will drive growth in the future as VoIP services gain popularity among both consumers and businesses.
