Worldwide Annual Shipments of Multi-Service Business Gateways to Approach 1.8 Million Units by 2015, Says In-Stat

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - Apr 27, 2011) - Multi-Service Business Gateways (MSBGs) combine data routing, VoIP, switching, security and analog voice interfaces into one device. The global recession has wreaked havoc across the economy but the MSBG market has fared relatively well as branch offices and small businesses look to reduce costs, pushing worldwide annual unit shipments toward 1.8 million by 2015, according to In-Stat (

"The trend towards centralization within the IT world and movement toward cloud and hosted services has had significant impact on the MSBG market across all segments," says Norm Bogen, VP, Research. "The enterprise is moving more data and services to the central data center and SMBs are relying on service providers to provide hosted services. This trend is driven by cost savings realized as a result of less infrastructure required on site as branch offices and SMBs are able to consolidate multiple services into an MSBG."

New research findings include:

  • In looking at the new branch and SMB offices opening, as well as estimates of the number of current offices replacing equipment in 2010, In-Stat estimates that 27% of competitive opportunities resulted in an MSBG purchase.
  • The top eight MSBG vendors in 2010, in terms of market share, were Adtran, AudioCodes, Avaya, Cisco, Critical Links, Edgewater Networks, Samsung and Siemens.
  • Nearly all MSBGs marketed for enterprise branch office applications will need to offer some form of unified communications functionality.
