REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – June 1, 2016 – A recently published report from Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, announced that Wireless Packet Core vendor revenues grew for the first time since 2014 and the market share differential is the smallest ever for vendors ranked one through five.

“Growth in the Wireless Packet Core market returned after over a year of decline, but Service Providers appear to have spread spending over a larger number of vendors in an attempt to maintain a competitive environment,” said Chris DePuy, Vice President at Dell’Oro Group. “The gap between revenue share of the first-ranked vendor and the fifth-ranked vendor shrunk to its smallest level since at least 2008. The number one vendor by revenue was Ericsson, followed by Huawei, Nokia, Cisco, and ZTE,” continued DePuy.

On a sessions-shipped basis, the Wireless Packet Core market experienced seven percent growth year-over-year in the first quarter of 2016 and is forecast to grow through 2016.  Dell’Oro Group’s Quarterly Wireless Packet Core Report contains pricing details for each major segment of the market including both Traditional Packet Core and Evolved Packet Core.
