Infonetics Research: Burgeoning enterprise SBC market set to grow an average of 49% annually through 2013

WOBURN, MA--(Marketwire - June 16, 2009) - Communications market research firm Infonetics Research today released a new Enterprise SBC Market Outlook report, which tracks enterprise session border controller manufacturer revenue and the number of sessions sold in North America, Asia Pacific, EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa), and Central and Latin America. Highlights follow.

"Unlike many of the other equipment markets we track, we expect the enterprise session border controller (SBC) market to be somewhat immune from the economic malaise in 2009. The enterprise SBC market is driven by the general adoption of SIP trunking services, and more specifically by large enterprises looking to SIP trunking services as a way of consolidating, centralizing, and increasing the utilization of their trunking infrastructure, which carries a powerful ROI," said Matthias Machowinski, Directing Analyst, Enterprise Voice and Data, Infonetics Research.


--  The relatively small enterprise SBC market took off in 2008, and is
    forecast to grow at a 49% compound annual growth rate from 2008 to 2013
--  The market is tilted heavily toward North America, with 68% of all
    enterprise SBC revenue coming from this region in 2008
--  The enterprise SBC market is strongest in North America due to higher
    SIP trunking adoption in this region, and to the fact that the 2 dominant
    vendors, Cisco and Acme Packet, are based in North America
--  SBCs have been deployed by service providers for years, and are
    finally starting to be used by enterprises for IP to IP networking
    connectivity, handling networking issues like NAT, firewall traversal,
    interworking between different protocols and vendor implementation of
    standards, and VoIP security


Infonetics' Enterprise SBC Market Outlook report provides worldwide and regional market size, analysis, and forecasts through 2013 for enterprise SBC revenue and sessions.
