Infonetics: Diameter Signaling Controller Market Set to Double in 2013 as LTE Deployments Take Off

CAMPBELL, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its Diameter Signaling Control report, which provides market size, market forecasts, and market analysis for the emerging Diameter signaling controller market.


"On the back of explosive growth in 2012, the Diameter signaling controller market is set to double this year as operators across the globe continue to build out LTE networks and as mobile broadband usage soars," notes Diane Myers, principal analyst for VoIP, UC, and IMS at Infonetics Research. "As more and more operators deploy LTE (News - Alert) and Diameter traffic grows, the requirements for signaling control-both within an operator's own network and between operators-also increase, making Diameter signaling controllers a necessity."


  • Global revenue from Diameter signaling controllers jumped over 900% in 2012 over 2011
  • The use case for Diameter signaling control has expanded well beyond centralized routing to include PCRF binding, LTE-to-LTE roaming, LTE-to-2G/3G roaming, and HSS address resolution
  • Tekelec (News - Alert), an early mover in the Diameter signaling controller space, remains the market leader thanks to high-profile wins in North America and Asia Pacific and is well positioned with an installed base of SS7 customers and leading position in the policy market
  • F5 Networks (News - Alert) and Acme Packet are also making good headway in the Diameter market with market-ready products and key customer wins
  • Going forward, the large telecom equipment providers are expected to push hard into the Diameter signaling control space

How often have you had a teleconference where—because of audio-related issues—you had difficulty in conducting an important meeting? Or in some cases, not even being able to make a clear connection at all? Curtiss Singleton, Director of Sales for the Americas at Revolabs, Inc., discusses conferencing solutions that not only provide unmatched audio quality, but ones that also “cut the cord”—giving you the freedom to move around the workspace. Doug Green, Publisher of Telecom Reseller, speaks with JP Carney, President and CEO of Revolabs, about the company, the importance of audio quality in UC, the compatibility of their products with various UC platforms, and their acquisition by Yamaha after one year. They discuss how clear audio for teleconferencing is the core element of true collaboration.
