REDWOOD CITY, Calif., March 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Dell'Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, announced today that wireline voice core market revenues stabilized in 2010, falling only 1 percent last year after double digit declines the prior two years. During 2010, strength in newer segments focusing primarily on all-IP networks and telephony applications (namely, session border controllers (SBC) and voice application servers) failed to offset declines in softswitches and media gateways, which focus on providing services in a mixed TDM and IP environment.
"The wireline voice core market declined slightly in 2010 as consumers increasingly opted for wireless and over-the-top Internet-based services like Skype and Google Voice," said Greg Collins, Vice President at Dell'Oro Group. "There are some bright spots, however, including business VoIP services, such as hosted unified communications, hosted PBX, and SIP trunk services, that have seen strong growth and are key drivers of the impressive increase in the SBC and voice application server markets," he added.
According to the report, Acme Packet gained market share in the SBC segment during 2010, and Broadsoft gained market share in the voice application server segment.
