In-Stat Reports Mobile Networks to Take Lead in Next-Generation IMS Networks.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Mobile networks will take the lead in establishing IP multimedia subsystem (IMS)-based next-generation networks (NGNs) and introducing next-generation applications, reports In-Stat ( Wireline operators will continue to operate NGN overlays over the next five years, focused on revenue-generating independent point-solutions, the high-tech market research firm says.

"There is no debate over whether IMS will be deployed," says Keith Nissen, In-Stat analyst. "Since all network equipment is becoming IMS-compliant, carriers will be deploying IMS regardless of their intentions. Mobile networks are evolving to IMS to reduce OPEX. Fixed-line operators, motivated by revenue retention, are deploying IMS-based point solutions on a very pragmatic basis; designed to meet each carrier's unique business goals. Whether service providers can adapt to meet the challenges of next-generation markets is a question still up for debate."

Recent research by In-Stat found the following:

* The two main drivers for IMS deployment are OPEX cost reduction and revenue generation.

* Subscribers to IMS-based services are expected to grow from 10 million in 2007 to over 500 million by 2011.

* Spending on IMS control layer equipment will total $12 billion by 2011.

The research, "IMS/NGN Network Strategies and Deployments" (#IN0602865WN), outlines the IMS/NGN migration roadmap for mobile and fixed-line operators. This research presents an introduction to the IMS network architecture, the market forces driving its deployment, and the carrier next-generation network (NGN) migration strategies being implemented. It includes forecasts for NGN CAPEX revenue, IMS services revenue, IMS network subscribers, and IMS application layer revenue through 2011. Forecasts include regional breakdowns.
