Infonetics Research: Policy management market on track to hit $471 million in 2010

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwire - September 27, 2010) -  Market research firm Infonetics Research ( released its updated 2010 Policy Servers market size, share, and forecast report, which tracks policy management software deployed in 3G broadband, WiMAX, and LTE wireless networks and in fixed line broadband and cable broadband networks.


"Policy management has really taken on a larger role within the operational environment and is increasingly being integrated with adjacent capabilities, such as charging, subscriber data management and performance management. The market continues to mature, as evidenced by Tekelec's acquisition of Camiant earlier this year, and we will see additional M&A activity going forward, with larger network and IT suppliers looking to round out their product portfolios with the capabilities of some of the smaller, more innovative policy players," expects Shira Levine, directing analyst for next gen OSS and policy at Infonetics Research.


  • Worldwide revenue for policy servers deployed in fixed line and mobile networks grew 73% in 2009, and is on track to reach $471 million in 2010
  • Infonetics increased its long-term forecasts for the policy management market, which is expected to grow to $1.6 billion by 2014
  • Revenue from wireless and fixed line policy deployments hit a 60%-40% split in 2009, and the wireless proportion of the market will continue to grow as mobile operators increasingly look to policy servers as a way to maximize the value of their WiMAX and LTE deployments
  • Managing bandwidth consumption remains one of the greatest drivers for policy server deployments by both the fixed and wireless operators, and as data traffic continues to skyrocket, particularly over 3G networks, that will not change any time soon


Infonetics' Policy Servers report provides worldwide and regional market size, market share, analysis, and forecasts through 2014 for fixed line and wireless (3G broadband, WiMAX, LTE) policy server licenses and manufacturer revenue.
