HILLSBOROUGH, Calif., Oct. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Exact Ventures announced today that it has launched coverage of the Diameter Signaling Controller (DSC) market with the publication of its DSC Market Forecast Report, 2011-2016.   The extraordinary growth in smartphone-based signaling traffic plus the growing number of network nodes that require signaling are creating an urgent need for a new signaling infrastructure.

According to the report, the emerging DSC market is forecast to more than double each year through 2016 due to very strong growth in network signaling traffic driven primarily by LTE-based smartphones.  Growth revenues from software license shipments over the next 5 years will be partially offset by an almost 20 percent yearly price erosion over the same period as the market becomes more competitive and as products become more cost effective due to economies of scale.

"Any failures of the signaling system can spell disaster for the network operator in the form of network outages, poor performance, and system latency, resulting in subscriber churn and lost revenues," stated Greg Collins, Founder and Principal Analyst at Exact Ventures.  "Diameter signaling controllers (DSCs) have arisen as a new signaling infrastructure that can accommodate the increase in network demand while still satisfying requirements for cost effectiveness, scalability, and security," added Collins.
