Market research firm Infonetics
Research released vendor market share and forecasts from its 2nd
quarter (2Q14) Service
Provider VoIP and IMS Equipment and Subscribers report. (Full
analysis published by Aug. 29.)
“At the end of 2013, we projected the IMS
equipment market would slow in 2014 as large operators in North America
and Asia Pacific commercially launch VoLTE services and capacity begins
to be utilized, and this is indeed happening,” reports Diane
Myers, principal analyst for VoIP, UC, and IMS at Infonetics
Research. “We don’t view this as a cause for alarm, but rather the
ship righting itself after a build-up of inventory for nationwide
VOIP AND IMS MARKET HIGHLIGHTS
To date, nationwide launches of voice over LTE (VoLTE) have taken
place only in small countries and city-states such as South Korea,
Singapore, and Hong Kong
Larger nationwide launches of VoLTE in the U.S. and Japan are expected
to begin toward the end of 2014; this, in addition to the activity of
operators in Europe, Canada, and other parts of Asia, will fuel IMS
equipment related to VoLTE in 2015
The global service provider VoIP and IMS market totaled $878 million
in 2Q14, down 6% from 2Q13, and down 12% sequentially
Home subscriber servers (HSSs), voice application servers (VASs), and
media gateway control function (MGCF) equipment were the only VoIP/IMS
product segments to post year-over-year growth in 2Q14
Asia Pacific and EMEA
notched solid VoIP/IMS revenue gains in 2Q14 over the same period a
year ago, while North America skidded
Huawei and Metaswitch are the standout IMS/VoIP vendors
in 2Q14, bucking the down quarter
The large network equipment vendors—Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson,
Huawei, and Nokia—are benefitting from VoLTE-related
activity and product sets that extend beyond IMS

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be.
We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
