The global service provider market for VoIP and IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) equipment rose a strong 30% sequentially, reaching $936 million, in a typically strong 2Q 2013, Infonetics Research reports in a preliminary release of its 2Q 2013 “Service Provider VoIP and IMS Equipment and Subscribers” report.

“IMS equipment has officially moved into an LTE and voice-over-LTE world, and there’s no going back now,” principal analyst for VoIP, UC and IMS at Infonetics Research Diane Myers was quoted in a press release. “In the second quarter we saw this impact spending on session border controllers and IMS core equipment for VoLTE access and interconnection (LTE to 3G) buildouts.

“Though LTE- and VoLTE-related equipment sales are growing, the market will continue to be lumpy from quarter to quarter,” she added.
