[cellular news] Market revenues in the Wireless Packet Core market grew almost 30 percent in 2009, with growth coming from all three market segments, reports Dell'Oro. GGSN and PDSN sessions led the market's shipment growth with each increasing approximately 60 percent during 2009.
"We've been watching the Wireless Packet Core market develop over the last two years, and are pleased to officially begin quarterly reporting on this market," said Tam Dell'Oro, Founder of Dell'Oro Group. "Wireless Packet Core is the third mobile infrastructure program that we've launched in the past two months and further illustrates our commitment to mobile infrastructure market research that began with our reporting on RAN and MSC segments in 2001," added Dell'Oro.
"While bandwidth capacity is often cited as the most critical wireless packet core issue, signaling capacity is also vital and will become more so with the increased penetration of smartphones," said Greg Collins, Vice President at Dell'Oro Group. "Therefore, we expect that the signaling intensive SGSN and MME markets will continue to rise along with bandwidth-intensive gateway products," Collins added.
The report indicates that Huawei and ZTE gained share in 2009. Ericsson, the market leader, maintained its share, and Nokia Siemens, in second place, lost share in 2009.
