DellOro Group: IP Phone Revenues to Surpass $6 Billion in 2012

(Wireless News Via Thomson Dialog NewsEdge)
IP Phone revenues are expected to double over the next five years,
reaching just over $6 billion by 2012, while shipments of IP Phones are
forecasted to grow 25 percent a year over the same period, according to
a recent report by Dell Oro Group, a source for information about the
telecommunications and networking industries.

Most of the strong future growth in IP Phones will continue to come
from IP desk phones that will begin incorporating more features and
functionality, such as larger color displays, touch screens, and video
capabilities, as the cost to add these features declines and users
begin to expect their desk phones to have a feature set similar to
their cell phones, said Alan Weckel, Senior Analyst at Dell Oro Group.
Fortunately for the IP Phone market, most LAN switch deployments will
be voice ready during the next five years, eliminating the concern for
enterprises deploying voice. By 2012, there will be enough
infrastructure in place to support VoIP to every enterprise desktop,
Weckel added.

The report also indicates that the IP lines will grow from slightly
less than 20 percent of total lines installed in 2007 to over 50
percent in 2012.

The Dell Oro Group 5-Year Forecast Report offers a complete overview of
the IP Telephony Enterprise industry with tables covering manufacturers
revenue, average selling prices, line (analog/digital and IP) shipments
for IP PBX, Hybrid IP/TDM PBX, traditional PBX, traditional key
systems, and IP telephones.
