BURLINGAME, Calif., June 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a newly updated report by Exact Ventures, Diameter Signaling Controller (DSC) cumulative product revenues between 2011 and 2016 are forecasted to approach $1 billion, a 25 percent increase compared to Exact Ventures' prior forecast.  Service providers fortifying their networks in anticipation of LTE-based signaling storms are fueling this market growth.  Adding to the market opportunity are services revenues, including software maintenance, which is expected to approach 40 percent of the overall market in 2017.

"More and more service providers, especially those with LTE-based networks, are being proactive and precautionary regarding their signaling infrastructure because signaling traffic is very difficult to predict and signaling storms can overwhelm networks resulting in network failures that in turn can result in subscriber churn," stated Greg Collins, Founder and Principal Analyst at Exact Ventures

The new report also indicates that overall DSC market vendor positioning is coming into focus at this early stage of the market with Tekelec capturing an estimated three-quarters of the market, followed by Acme Packet and F5/Traffix.  Exact Ventures expects market competition to intensify as larger vendors like Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, and Huawei enter the market.
