Sonus-Based Networks Carry Over 38 Billion VoIP Minutes in Q2

Sonus Networks announced that its equipment deployed carrier customers worldwide carried an estimated 38.2 billion minutes of VoIP traffic in the second quarter of 2005 -- more than twice the amount of total VoIP traffic carried by any other equipment provider in the industry -- according to a report issued by industry research firm, iLocus. Sonus also held the number one market share position in both national and international long distance traffic with 39.5% and 21.9% of the market respectively.

VoIP solutions have moved beyond the "early adopter" phase, both in terms of the number of minutes currently being carried and the consumer profile of end users. According to the iLocus report, in total, an estimated 127.5 billion minutes of VoIP traffic was carried by service providers worldwide in 2Q05, a number that is expected to rise as carriers accelerate their migration plans and new players enter the market. To date, only 13% of all long distance minutes are carried over VoIP networks.
