The Carrier IP Telephony market continues to be highly dynamic, as service providers transition their legacy voice networks to VoIP to provide new services, many of which will be based on IMS equipment.

To take advantage of the opportunities in this market, component manufacturers, equipment vendors, service providers, and financial institutions need to answer critical business questions including:

  • How will IMS, SBC and VAS equipment affect the market for fixed and mobile core equipment?
  • What happens to capital spending as Voice over LTE (VoLTE) services emerge?
  • How is vendor consolidation impacting the market?
  • How fast is the market for wireless voice core equipment transitioning away from circuit-based MSCs, media gateways and softswitches?
  • How are high-growth services like SIP Trunking and IP Centrex/Outsourced Telephony affecting the equipment market, and how are these impacted by wireless network activity?
  • Who are the winners as the market transitions to Network Function Virtualization (NFV)?

To answer these and other important questions, Dell’Oro Group delivers both quarterly reports and 5-year forecasts on the Carrier IP Telephony market.
