The session border control market is forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 23.7% to 2015, and is expected to record a market value of $527 million by 2016.
The adoption of session initiation protocol trunks remains the primary driver within the session border control market, with market sales growing 88% in 2011 over the previous year.
A session border controller is a device regularly deployed in Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) networks to exert control over the signalling and usually also the media streams involved in setting up, conducting, and tearing down telephone calls or other interactive media communications.
North America makes up the majority of the session border control market, though its share of global session border control revenue will decline to a smaller majority as other regions increase session initiation protocol trunk adoption.
Companies have begun to develop router-integrated session border controller to avoid jitters in networks which are caused by standalone session border controls.
This helps service providers reduce their equipment cost, while also controlling other operating expenses such as space and power utilisation.
A key player in the session border control market is Acme Packet, the leader in session delivery network solutions, which enable the trusted, first-class delivery of next-generation voice, data and unified communications services and applications across IP networks.
