SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Worldwide revenues for next gen voice products totaled $386 million in 2000 and are forecasted to total $6 billion in 2004, according to Infonetics Research's quarterly worldwide market share and forecast service, "Next Gen Voice Products," released today. Voice/data switches, voice over broadband gateways, voice over IP gateways, and softswitches are forecasted in this service.

"We're excited to launch this new service that focuses on the building blocks of the new voice and data network," said Infonetics Research analyst Kevin Mitchell. "Start-ups have led the voice/data switch market thus far, which we expect to reach $2.7 billion in 2004, with Sonus a clear revenue leader and Unisphere leading with DS0 deployments," continued Mitchell. "Softswitches, the brains and service platforms for the next gen network, make up a young market that is still taking shape, with many new players poised to enter. We see this market growing to over $1 billion by 2003."
