Huawei leads thriving VoIP market

19 Aug 15

Huawei has taken the lead in the growing global service provider VoIP and IMS equipment market in 2Q15, closely followed by Ericsoon, Alcatel-Lucent and Genband.

Mavenir, a division of Mitel, also had standout growth from a year ago, according to IHS, the market research firm.

According to the 2Q15 IHS Infonetics Service Provider VoIP Equipment and Subscribers report, global service provider VoIP and IMS revenue was up 46% year-over-year in 2Q15, to $1.3 billion.

“Spending related to voice over LTE (VoLTE) deployments is starting to pick up, [...] fuelling continued strong growth in the service provider VoIP and IMS market,” says Diane Myers, IHS research director for VoIP, UC and IMS. 

“As well, operators with commercial VoLTE networks in North America and Asia Pacific are purchasing additional capacity as subscriber numbers grow in those regions,” Myers says. 

In 2Q15, all product segments - including legacy softswitches and trunk media gateways - posted year-over-year revenue growth, with SBCs (session border controllers) particularly strong, says IHS.

Furthermore, there was also growth across all major geographical regions in 2Q15 from the year-ago quarter.

IHS forecasts sales of carrier VoIP and IMS equipment to be up by double digits for the full-year 2015, with mobile operators worldwide ramping up for VoLTE and VoWiFi.
