Synergy: Q2 IPTV gear market up 30% year-over-year

Synergy Research Group reports that the global market for IPTV equipment increased 30.3 percent in the second quarter of 2008 versus the second quarter of 2007. Network edge gear intended to support growing traffic needs and improve network efficiency experienced particularly strong growth, Synergy said. The core router segment also was up by almost 38 percent, and Cisco Systems, Juniper Networks and Ericsson experienced some of the largest IPTV revenue growth among vendors.

The equipment numbers provide signs not only that the IPTV market continues to expand worldwide, but that initial services are succeeding, which means carrier strategies will mature and carriers will look for ways to bolster the network infrastructure for the next wave of subscriber and traffic growth.
