REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – May 29, 2014 –Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, announced today that Carrier IP Telephony market revenue grew almost twenty percent in the first quarter of 2014 versus the year-ago period.  Market expansion was primarily driven by technologies delivering Voice over LTE (VoLTE) capability to carrier networks.

“Large Service Providers in the United States and Asia-Pacific—namely AT&T, DOCOMO and Hong Kong Telecom (HKT)—recently announced early commercial availability of VoLTE, suggesting that technical and integration risks can be overcome,” said Chris DePuy, Vice President of Carrier IP Telephony research at Dell’Oro Group.  “What is also interesting to note is that multiple equipment vendors participated in each network roll out, signaling the importance that collaboration will play in the success of these new ventures.”

The overall Carrier IP Telephony market, which includes devices used to serve both circuit switched subscribers, Voice over IP (VoIP) and Voice over LTE subscribers, topped $1.7 billion in the first quarter 2014.
