VoIP Routers Week in Review
By Ashok Bindra, TMCnet Contributor
While product introductions were rather slow this past week in the VoIP world, there were many other interesting announcements and market reports released in this sector. TeleCommunication Systems (TCS), for instance, talked about a contract from the U.S. Army. And research firms Dell’Oro Group and Infonetics (News - Alert) revealed results from market studies.
A report by the research firm Dell’Oro Group shows that the revenues for carrier IP telephony market have declined 12 percent overall versus a year-ago period. However, with the growing adoption of voice over long term evolution (VoLTE) services and networks, the same report shows an increase in the sales of IP multimedia subsystem (IMS) core, session border controller (SBC) and voice application server (VAS) systems by 26 percent.
This increase in VoLTE spending in North America is giving carrier VoIP/IMS market a boost, according to market watcher Infonetics, reported TMCnet contributor Anuradha Shukla. As per this study, the carrier VoIP/IMS market surged 30 percent in the second quarter of 2013. The report quotes Diane Myers, principal analyst for VoIP, UC and IMS at Infonetics Research, as saying, “IMS equipment has officially moved into an LTE (News - Alert) and voice-over-LTE world, and there’s no going back now.”
In another development, TCS received $3.2 million in incremental funding from the U.S. Army for Secret Internet Protocol Router and Non-secure Internet Protocol Router Access Point (News - Alert) (SNAP) Tactical Transportable TROPO (3T) deployable communications systems, reported TMCnet contributor Rajani Baburajan. As per the report, procurements for these programs are funded by the U.S. Army Project Manager for the Warfighter Information Network - Tactical (PM WIN-T) Commercial Satellite Terminal Program through the Army's $5 billion World-Wide Satellite Systems (WWSS) contract vehicle.
Likewise, VoIP Supply announced that it is enabling schools to set up wireless networks through its Edu Assist Program that helps these educational institutes adopt mobile, wireless technology in classrooms, reported Shukla. The Edu Assist Program is designed to help students learn with tablets by leveraging wireless access points. This program is already popular and to date has assisted several schools and colleges to deploy the VoIP phone systems, wrote Shukla.
Lastly, Moxa, a provider of hardened networking, communication and computing solutions, introduced the EDR-810 to address IT security issues in industrial applications, reported TMCnet contributing writer Michael Guta. The EDR-810 is a single device with a Gigabit-performance secure router with built-in managed switch.
