3G and VoIP Adoption Encourages Higher Deployment of Service Provider UC Solutions

A New Study by The Radicati Group Shows That Mobility and Emerging IP Technologies Are Driving Sales of UC Services

PALO ALTO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 13, 2006 --The latest study by The Radicati Group, "Service Provider Unified Communications Market, 2006-2010," provides market size, four-year forecasts, technology trends, and competitive information for the Service Provider Unified Communications market.

The study looks at the market as comprising of 3 segments: Hosted UC Service Providers, which are pure-play ASP hosted solutions, Telecom UC Service Providers, which bundle UC functionality with a broad range of other services, and UC Suppliers to Service Providers, which sell UC applications and platforms to Service Providers.

The growth of the UC market continues to be driven by the increasing adoption of complementary technologies, such as 3G and VoIP, which enable the delivery of more interactive, real-time communication services, adding value and usability to UC solutions.

Over the next four years, UC Service Providers in the Hosted and Telco segments are expected to collect about $2.6 billion in worldwide revenues in 2006, growing to almost $19.7 billion in 2010. The UC Suppliers to Service Providers segment is expected to grow from $599 million in 2006, to almost $1.5 billion in 2010.
