By Anuradha Shukla, TMCnet Contributor
The SIP-based IP PBX (News - Alert) market in Chile is poised for significant growth, according to WinterGreen Research’s new report, “Chile- SIP Enabled Server and IP PBX Market Shares, Market Forecasts, and Market Strategies, 2008-2014.”
This report, which has recently been added to Research and Markets’ offering, indicates that in Chile people have begun to purchase IP-based servers for communications and significant pent up demand will be converted to sales as systems are offered in the market that allow implementation of voice over IP that works.
The SIP PBX / IP PBX markets in Chile are predicted to grow from $64.5 million in 2007 to $228 million by 2014. Representing the next generation of enterprise voice systems, SIP server and IP-PBX shipments completely replace traditional PBX systems. WinterGreen Research believes that IP-PBX shipments are related to traditional PBX shipments since they make use of the existing installed base. The IP-PBX architecture allows businesses to reduce infrastructure cost while improving productivity.
“Chile- SIP Enabled Server and IP PBX Market Shares, Market Forecasts, and Market Strategies, 2008-2014,” shows that Chile has a high regard for U.S. equipment, which is popular for its reliability and quality. Representing 30 percent of total imports, the U.S. is Chile’s largest telecommunications equipment supplier.
According to the report, Cisco is an important supplier of telco's net infrastructure in the Chilean market. Lucent sells equipment for corporate networks in Chile, and 3Com (News - Alert) and Avaya have a presence in SIP-enabled servers and IP PBX systems in Chile.
