The global IP telephony carrier market continued to enjoy healthy growth in first quarter of 2005, fuelled in large part by a 30 per cent increase in soft-switch subscriber licences, research published today has revealed.
According to a report from networking and telecoms analyst Dell'Oro Group, soft-switch subscriber access sales are the fastest growing segment in the market with over 60 per cent growth compared to the same period a year ago.
"In the first quarter of 2005, carriers purchased soft-switches that will support over 11 million subscribers on packet-based next-generation networks," said Steve Raab, director of IP telephony research at Dell'Oro Group.
"Most of these soft-switches are being deployed to support voice-over-broadband services provided by incumbent carriers and other service providers as they compete to attract subscribers by broadening their service offerings and geographic reach."
