According to Dittberner’s Q2 2005 NGN Shipments Analysis, over 16 million media gateway, softswitch and integrated VoIP ports were shipped during the quarter around the world.

The 16.5% increase over the previous quarter is due to ongoing carrier upgrade activity and is further supported by reduced pricing stimulated by marketplace competition, the consulting and research company says.

Nortel Networks leads the market, having shipped 3.288 million VoIP ports. Siemens edged out Huawei Technologies into second place this quarter gaining 18.17% of global market share compared to Huawei’s 16.19%.

Dittberner expects to see further growth in VoIP equipment shipments over the next quarters as the migration to packet telephony picks up pace around the globe.

The report includes worldwide VoIP market size in terms of ports shipped and revenue, by product (media gateway, softswitch), architecture (distributed, integrated), class type (class 4, class 5), port type (IP, ATM, TDM).

It also provides the regional breakdown of these shipments by ports and revenue, as well as the positions of all market players in comparison with previous quarters.
