Infonetics: SIP Trunking Services Push Enterprise Session Border Controller (eSBC) Market up 11 Percent from a Year Ago

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwired - January 08, 2015) - Technology market research firm Infonetics Research, now part of IHS Inc. (NYSE: IHS), today released excerpts from its third quarter 2014 (3Q14) Enterprise Session Border Controllers market share and forecast report, which tracks eSBC session shipments and vendor revenue.


"The use of enterprise session border controllers (eSBCs) is becoming more mainstream with the adoption of SIP trunking services, where SBCs are used as a border element between enterprise and service provider networks. In the third quarter, global eSBC revenue totaled $73 million, up 11% over the year-ago third quarter," said Diane Myers, principal analyst for VoIP, UC, and IMS at Infonetics Research.

Myers continued: "North America continues to be the number-one region for eSBCs, but enterprises in other regions, particularly Europe, are accelerating adoption of SIP trunking, and this is anticipated to positively impact eSBC sales outside North America."


  • Businesses of all sizes are starting to adopt SIP trunking, and in 3Q14, enterprises with less than 800 employees made up the largest segment of enterprise SBC sessions, with 68 percent
  • Infonetics projects the global enterprise SBC market to grow to $356 million by 2018
  • Cisco headed the pack for eSBC vendor market share in 3Q14, while Oracle had the most robust quarter of any eSBC vendor, posting a 26 percent sequential revenue gain
  • There remains strong upside potential for eSBCs, as they are the next generation of border elements and will eventually replace the TDM-to-VoIP gateways in use today

Infonetics' quarterly enterprise SBC report provides worldwide and regional market size, market share, forecasts, analysis and trends for enterprise SBC revenue and sessions by system and business size in North America, EMEA, Asia Pacific and CALA.
