Evolved packet core revenues to grow 100 percent through 2015


The wireless packet core equipment market is forecast to
grow more than 20 percent annually to reach almost $6 billion by 2015,
according to Dell’Oro Group.  


Evolved Packet Core, the emerging segment of this market,
is forecast to expand more than 100 percent annually in revenues, while
traditional packet core equipment is expected to grow in the single digits each
year during the forecast period.


“Smartphone and tablet usage is expected to drive an
80 percent per year increase in wireless mobile data usage over the next five
years. Service Providers are responding to this surging data demand by
purchasing wireless packet core equipment, and increasingly, evolved packet
core equipment,” said Chris DePuy, analyst at Dell’Oro Group.


Evolved Packet Core equipment enables 4G data services
and is backwards compatible to 3G. The report shows that the PCRF market is
forecast to surge to over $600 million in 2015.


Besides providing data capacity, products in the wireless
core market enable service providers to differentiate and enable new tiers of
services using Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF) to tie into billing


Service providers view evolved packet core equipment as
more than bandwidth management systems. These systems are critical to managing
the business models in the delivery of mobile data services.
