IP Multimedia Subsystems (IMS) Test and Monitoring Solutions: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) May 09, 2012
Follow us on LinkedIn – Increased adoption of high-bandwidth Internet applications such as e-mail, video conferencing, instant messaging, content sharing, downloading, and web browsing, has and will continue to drive demand for new generation IP based communication services environment, enabled by high-speed broadband networks. This emphasis on intelligent network platforms is driving demand for IMS architecture, which is highly qualified to support next generation communication services. The transition to IMS as the most preferred next-generation architecture is expected to receive a major boost from the fast expanding LTE deployment and standardization in LTE-based voice services. Although majority of revenue for service operators continues to emerge from voice services, voice-based applications still suffer from quality issues within LTE, which threatens to hamper growth of LTE. This scenario therefore mandates LTE to have IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) for voice calls. Initiative to standardize voice services in LTE will provide impetus to more network operators to shift to LTE, thereby driving market fortunes for IMS.
This increased demand for IMS networks has and will continue to create ample opportunities for growth in the global IMS Test & Monitoring Solutions market as the complex deployment process of IMS networks and the need for ensuring error-free functioning of these networks mandate the adoption of testing and monitoring solutions. With adoption of IMS equipment projected to increase further as major service providers undergo Class 5 replacement projects, wireless operators launch IMS for LTE, and cable operators gear up to introduce new networks, it will be opportunities galore for IMS test and monitoring solutions market. Robust activity in mobile IMS-based services with several mobile operators planning to launch mobile video calling services will also drive market prospects for IMS Test and Monitoring Solutions. Growing adoption of IMS testing equipment by network operator labs, especially in Europe, given the region’s high level of sophistication in mobile services also augurs well for the future of this market. The growing number of IMS field trials, evaluations, and need for pre-roll out testing is forecast to positively benefit IMS test and monitoring solutions. In addition, network optimization for the enhancement of voice quality and reliability of network performances will also encourage greater adoption of test & monitoring solutions by NSPs.
