Technology market research firm Infonetics Research, now part of IHS Inc. (NYSE: IHS), today reported that the Diameter signaling control market will grow threefold between 2014 and 2018, to $1.3 billion.
Infonetics’ Diameter Signaling Control report tracks Diameter signaling controllers, which handle and secure the exponentially increasing Diameter signaling traffic on service provider networks triggered by mobile IP data and voice services.
“Developed as the next-generation signaling protocol, Diameter has begun to permeate networks, driven by increasing LTE usage and the emergence of VoLTE (voice over LTE). As a result, the Diameter market spiked 81 percent in 2014 from the previous year,” said Diane Myers, principal analyst for VoIP, UC, and IMS at Infonetics Research.
Myers added: “The Diameter vendor landscape is beginning to shake out, and it’s a tight race at the top between Huawei, F5and Oracle. We see a strengthening of Ericsson and a push from Alcatel-Lucent, Sonus and now Mavenir with its acquisition of Ulticom. The consolidation continues, and we expect even more in 2015.”
