CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J. -- Probe Group predicts that by the end of 2008 nearly 27% of the global fixed line market will be using voice over packet technology (VoP). "Line-Side VoIP – What is Driving Demand," a new report from Probe Group, forecasts the market for VoP access gateway revenues and analyzes the evolution of VoP services.

VoP capital spending is moving from the core of the network to the edge. "As local carriers reallocate their budgets from traditional to next-generation equipment, VoP technology will make its way into the loop side of the central office," says Christine Hartman, Probe Group Research Director, Packet Voice Markets.

"Ultimately, VoP will approach the Class 5 central office from both the line and trunk sides," Hartman continued. "Carriers will then have to consider replacing Class 5 switches with softswitches," Hartman concludes.

Near term premise-based access gateways dominate and they will continue to be important as voice over broadband (VOBB) deployments accelerate. But eventually network-based access gateways will assume greater importance as incumbents seek more economic ways to serve residual circuit switched customers.
