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 IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.

Manufacturing has widely adopted standardized and automated processes to create designs, build them, and maintain them through their life cycle. However, many modern manufacturing systems go beyond mechanized workflows to introduce empowered workers, flexible collaboration, and rapid iteration.
Such behaviors also characterize open source software development and are at the heart of DevOps culture, processes, and tooling.

As-a-service models offer huge opportunities, but also complicate security. It may seem that the easiest way to migrate to a new architectural model is to let others, experts in their field, do the work. This has given rise to many as-a-service models throughout the industry and across the entire technology stack, from software to infrastructure. While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.
