Voice Over LTE and Enterprise Voice Services Capital Spending to RiseJanuary 30 2012
Redwood City, Calif. – Dell”Oro Group, the trusted source for information about the networking and telecommunications industries, reported that service provider voice core equipment spending in 2016 is expected to hit $6.8B, a decline of 10% over 2011 revenues. Over the next five years, device revenue tied to circuit switching, or to converting traffic from circuit to VoIP, is expected to decline 8% CAGR, while software-based devices tied to VoIP-Only are expected to grow 19%. The faster-growing segment includes Voice Application Servers (VAS), Session Border Controllers (SBC) and IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) devices, which will benefit from upgrades related to broadband growth, enterprise use of SIP Trunking and cloud-based telephony, and wireless network upgrades to VoLTE.
"This year, we expect to see commercial launches of VoLTE services in North America. The underlying VoLTE infrastructure is unique from prior generations of wireless voice core equipment because it is software-based,” said Chris DePuy, Analyst at Dell”Oro Group. “As the large installed base of wireless users gradually transitions towards VoLTE, it should cause a shift in wireless voice spending towards VAS, SBC and IMS systems – a trend already underway in wireline networks,” finished DePuy.
The report also includes estimates for Voice over LTE (VoLTE) subscribers, Softswitch and Media Gateway equipment, and Enterprise SBCs.
