Following the completion of illumes biannual industry research, we can report that the IP/SIP trunking market has reached 570,232 trunks. This figure represents continued strong growth from the previous period, and shows no signs of slowing up with Service Providers reporting strong funnels in the coming months.
We also looked at where this base was being sold in terms of company size please see chart below:
As you can see by the chart above the market is still dominated by large organisations, who generally have delivered IP/SIP trunks over quality enabled networks. However we are starting to see the impact of both EFM and FTTC technologies, which will open up the SME opportunity further.
Also Enterprise provider were starting to see customer utilise Microsoft Lync as a replacement to an onsite PBX, and 60% of providers we undertaking testing of Microsoft Lync with their SIP/IP Trunking solutions.
We will be updating our Market reports in August to reflect this latest report. To find our more about our research please go to http://www.illumeconsulting.co.uk/research.shtml
