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
