Wireless Packet Core Revs Up 20% Annually
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- Dell'Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, announced today that the overall Wireless Packet Core market grew over 20% during the second quarter of 2013 versus the year-ago period.
Key takeaways from the second quarter:
"We are seeing considerable volatility in the Evolved Packet Core segment on a revenue basis. Last quarter, Cisco regained the number two position. This quarter, 2Q13, Alcatel-Lucent's revenue share in EPC rose significantly, propelling it to the number one position," said Chris DePuy, Vice President of Wireless Packet Core Research at Dell'Oro Group. "However, if we look at session shipment patterns over the past three quarters we see a more stable picture, with Ericsson retaining its position as the leading EPC vendor," he added.
