Evolved Packet Core Expands Over 200 Percent In 4Q12, According To Dell'Oro Group





REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dell'Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, announced today that Wireless Packet Core market revenues grew 25 percent year-over-year during the fourth quarter of 2012, driven by significant expansion of the Evolved Packet Core (EPC) segment.

Key takeaways from the quarter:

  • Ericsson achieved top ranking in the overall market by revenue; Huawei achieved top ranking by licenses shipped
  • Alcatel-Lucent and Samsung are benefitting from the industry transition towards Evolved Packet Core (EPC), taking significantly greater share in EPC than their share in the Traditional Packet Core segment
  • Overall market pricing was stable in the quarter.

"Since the emergence of Long-Term Evolution (LTE) a couple years ago, hundreds of Service Providers around the world have awarded EPC vendor contracts to companies such as Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco Systems, Ericsson, Huawei, Nokia Siemens, Samsung and ZTE," said Chris DePuy, Analyst of Wireless Packet Core at Dell'Oro Group.  "While we expect more EPC contracts to be awarded, much of the vendor landscape for LTE-focused networks has been settled.  In the near future, we expect that important market transitions providing new opportunity for vendors will involve Software Defined Networking and virtualized computing architectures, consolidation of WiFi traffic to service packet core networks, and LTE network optimization to deliver Voice over LTE (VoLTE)."
