Call for Packet Voice to Boost VoIP IC Revenues Reports In-Stat/MDR.Business Editors/High-Tech Writers
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 3, 2003

In-Stat/MDR classifies VoIP ICs into three key segments: IP Phone ICs, Customer Premise Equipment (CPE (Customer Premises Equipment) Communications equipment that resides on the customer's premises.
CPE - Customer Premises Equipment ) VoIP gateway ICs and infrastructure VoIP gateway ICs. In-Stat/MDR found the following with regard to each segment:
-- IP Phone ICs are becoming increasingly integrated and
specialized, with three port Ethernet switches, integrated
PHYs, and security processors becoming increasingly common.
Cellular/WLAN functionality will be bundled with IP Phone ICs
in the near future. IP Phone IC revenues will grow from $15.6
million in 2002 to $49.6 million in 2007, for a 26.0% CAGR CAGR
See: Compound Annual Growth Rate .
-- CPE VoIP gateway ICs are, currently, used most in "two-box"
deployments in residential IP Telephony The two-way transmission of voice over a packet-switched IP network, which is part of the TCP/IP protocol suite. The terms "IP telephony" and "voice over IP" (VoIP) are synonymous. , with a separate

ATA - Advanced Technology Attachment ) attached to a broadband modem.
While there are many good reasons for this model, over the
forecast period, a "one-box" model, with VoIP integrated
directly into a Residential Gateway (RG) will become the prime
form factor for residential deployments. Overall, CPE VoIP
gateway revenues are expected to rise from $21.1 million in
2002 to $55.1 million in 2007, for a 21.2% CAGR.
-- The infrastructure VoIP gateway (commonly referred to as a
"media gateway") market experienced a steep decline in 2001
and most of 2002, due to dramatically lowered telecom capex
spending. However, this market has picked up, particularly in
the Asia-Pac region, and is now experiencing solid growth.
Consequently, the market for infrastructure VoIP gateway ICs
will rise from $18.2 million in 2002 to $36.4 million in 2007,
for a 14.8% CAGR.

A TI engineer, Jack Kilby invented the integrated circuit in 1958. Three TI employees left the company in 1982 to start Compaq. (TI) currently dominates the VoIP IC market,
representing roughly 80.0% of the total shipment volume for
each of the three key segments.
The report, "VoIP ICs: The Market Calls For Packet Voice" (#IN030849NT), analyzes the market for VoIP ICs, including silicon and equipment trends, and provides shipment and revenue data for 2002, as well as a five-year forecast to 2007. Three key segments of the market are covered: IP Phone ICs, CPE VoIP gateway ICs (which are utilized in Analog and Multi-media Terminal Adapters (A/MTAs), some broadband modems and Residential Gateways (RGs), Packet Integrated Access Devices (Packet IADs), and IP-PBXs), and infrastructure VoIP gateway ICs (utilized primarily in media gateways and wireless infrastructure Base Station Controllers (BSCs).
