Cahners In-Stat/MDR (www.instat.com) the softswitch market is in the very early stages of what the high-tech market research firm believes will be a long growth period, as the public switched telephone network is transformed into a packet switched network capable of supporting voice, data and video.
The softswitch will be a key component of this transformation as it controls the media gateways, IP phones and Integrated Access Devices An IAD is a customer premises device that provides access to wide area networks and the Internet. Specifically, it aggregates multiple channels of information including voice and data across a single shared access link to a carrier or service provider PoP (Point of Presence). (IADs) in the packet switched network and provides interworking (standard) interworking - Systems or components, possibly from different origins, working together to perform some task. Interworking depends crucially on standards to define the interfaces between the components. with the traditional circuit switched network.
[pilcrow (paragraph sign)] Norm Bogen, a director with In-Stat/MDR stated, "The reduced service provider capital equipment budgets in 2002 will dampen growth in the softswitch market. With reduced budgets, service providers will limit their spending to products that reduce costs or increase revenues and deliver an appropriate return on investment (ROI (Return On Investment) The monetary benefits derived from having spent money on developing or revising a system. In the IT world, there are more ways to compute ROI than Carter has liver pills (and for those of you who never heard of that expression, it means a lot). ).
"Softswitches and related technologies can reduce costs and provide for increased service revenue, which leads us to conclude that they will continue to be deployed."
In-Stat/MDR predicts that it will take at least 10 years, and probably closer to 20 years, to convert from a circuit switched telephone network to a converged packet switched network. Many service providers are already evaluating, and in some cases deploying, softswitch technology.
In-Stat/MDR has also found that:
-- The worldwide softswitch market is expected to reach $1.32 billion in 2006, representing a compound annual growth rate of 60.2 percent over the forecast period (2001 - 2006). The market will continue to experience strong growth beyond 2006. -- Companies competing in the softswitch market include traditional telecommunications equipment and software suppliers like Lucent, Nortel, Tekelec and Siemens, as well as start-ups such as NexVerse Networks and Sonus Networks. -- In the short term, vendors that supply both a media gateway and softswitch, will be in a stronger position than those that supply only the softswitch.
