Research and Markets: The Global Internet Protocol Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) Equipment Market to Grow At A CAGR Of 28.18 Percent Over the Period 2011-2015

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/s3qqbd/global_internet) has announced the addition of the "Global Internet Protocol Multimedia Subsystem Equipment Market 2011-2015" report to their offering.

One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing popularity of long-term evolution (LTE) services. The Global IMS Equipment market has also been witnessing an increase in IMS connections. However, the complications in maintaining centralized databases could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

The key vendors dominating this space are Ericsson Inc., ZTE Corp., Nokia Siemens Networks B.V., Alcatel-Lucent, and Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd.

The other vendors mentioned in the report are Tekelec Inc., Acme Packet Inc., China Mobile Ltd., Mavenir Systems Inc., BroadSoft Inc., Cisco Systems Inc., NEC Corp., and GENBAND Inc.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Telecom team said: ''The number of Internet Protocol Multimedia Subsystem (IMS)-based connections is increasing at a fast rate. The total number of IMS-based subscribers is expected to increase rapidly in the near future. The ability of IMS in offering session control for Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) deployment is driving an increase in these numbers. Moreover, communication service providers are confident about the capability of IMS in handling the large-scale future requirements of network architecture. In addition, IMS equipment manufacturers are increasing the scaling capabilities of their IMS products to address machine-to-machine (M2M) environments. It is expected that M2M will rapidly increase the number of mobile connections in the coming years.''

According to the report, one of the main growth drivers is the increasing popularity of long-term evolution (LTE) services. Mobile network operators are increasingly adopting IMS for the delivery of their services over LTE-based networks. They believe that IMS deployment has been delayed for too long and now it has become inevitable.
