iLocus publishes results from two surveys


iLocus today published results from two surveys. One concerns the survey of 100 VoIP vendors and the other relates to a survey of 100 IPTV service providers worldwide.

IPTV Service Provider Survey:
A survey report published by iLocus today reveals that 44% of IPTV service providers regard the IPTV technology immature. The technology, according to them, is not robust enough to support a scalable IPTV deployment. The report is based on interactions with 100 IPTV service providers worldwide.

The other challenges facing the IPTV service providers include Absence of Standards, Lack of User Friendly UI, and difficulty they are experiencing in monetizing VOD.

In another survey report published by iLocus recently it appears that 54% of the IPTV service providers use COTS hardware as the underlying platform for VOD solutions. Among the remaining 46% that use proprietary hardware, a huge majority of 30% will shift over to COTS hardware in the near future.

VOIP Vendor Survey:
The economic slowdown has only had a negative short-term impact on carrier VoIP equipment business according to the vendors surveyed by iLocus. Out of a survey of 100 VoIP vendors conducted by iLocus, 66 mentioned that the impact of the slowdown has been negative short-term. Nearly half of these vendors expect a growth of 25 to 50% over the course of 2010.

While Class 4 softswitch business was perceived to be least affected during the slowdown, the overall IMS implementations were worst hit during the same period, according to the survey.

Going forward, the vendors expressed confidence in SIP trunking as the growth segment during 2010, with other bright spots being mobile VoIP and Access VoIP deployments.

The survey results come from the report ‘VoIP Vendor Survey’ published by iLocus today.
