Exact Ventures Tracks 40% Growth in IMS


The IP multimedia subsystem (IMS) Core market grew nearly 40 percent in the second quarter of this year compared to the same quarter last year, according to a new report from Exact Ventures.

"The total SBC market continues to be boosted by the enterprise SBC category (E-SBC), which continues to be fueled by strong adoption of hosted unified communications and SIP trunking services" said Greg Collins, Founder and Principal Analyst at Exact Ventures.

Some highlights:

  • Wireline deployments in China boosted the IMS market in the second quarter, but those deployments were not strong enough for the market to increase sequentially over the first quarter of this year, which benefited from exceptionally strong voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) deployments in North America.  
  • Huawei led the IMS Core market in the second quarter, followed by Nokia Siemens, Ericsson, and Mavenir, respectively.
  • The total NGN voice and IMS Core market grew only slightly quarter-over-quarter as seasonal strength in the wireless voice core market was barely able to offset sequential weakness in the legacy wireline NGN and IMS Core markets.
  • The service provider session border controller (SP-SBC) market has not been immune to weakness in wireline spending as it was essentially flat both sequentially and year-over-year.
