Dell'Oro: EPC Revenues to Double Annually Through 2015

EPC market revenues are forecast to double on average annually between 2010 and 2015, while growth in the overall wireless packet core market is expected to expand an average of 20 percent each year during the same time period, according to Dell'Oro Group.

The entire wireless packet core market is expected to grow strongly, but much more explosive growth is expected from mobile broadband subscriptions and traffic," said Greg Collins, Vice President at Dell'Oro Group. "Price and performance improvements in the form of higher capacity and scalable systems will be needed to facilitate the expected surge in mobile data traffic, which is forecast to exceed 40 Exabytes per year by 2015," added Collins. "Without these performance improvements, the growth in mobile data traffic will severely restrict the profitability of mobile data services, and limit growth of the entire industry by keeping prices high, subscriber adoption low, and further necessitating limits on data traffic," added Collins.
