Due to the large number of businesses transitioning from old business phone equipment to top-quality VoIP business phones, this segment of the voice solution market has been a driving factor in the IMS multimedia subsystem market, a new report suggests. This research came from Extract Ventures, a market intelligence firm based in Hillsborough, California, and was released on December 15 via a company press release.
Overall, the report found that the core IMS equipment market was up from figures recorded the same time a year ago. In addition, the researchers suggested that the market could escalate in 2012, as more business owners look to replace outdated equipment with new devices that can allow their employees to conduct their tasks with more flexibility.
Sales in a number of other subcategories also helped spur business spending in the VoIP telephony services industry. For example, business owners continued to invest in enterprise session border controllers (SBCs) – which can defend VoIP systems from threats and allow for increased session quality – and voice application servers (VASs) – which works in conjunction with VoIP business phones.
“Such investment is likely to continue, as VoIP services still comprise less than one quarter of fixed lines and a negligible amount of wireless lines,” Greg Collins, Founder and Principal Analyst at research firm Exact Ventures, in a statement. “As the transition to VoIP continues, so will the growth of the SBC and VAS market segments.”
Due to the increase in spending across the VoIP industry, business owners who still rely on old Chicago phone systems for internal and external communication may want to consider speaking with an industry leader that can help them with the transition.
