[Heavy Ready]: 2011 Policy Management & DPI Market Reached $1B; TEMs Gain Higher Share

Graham Finnie (pictured), Chief Analyst, Heavy Reading reports that "According to our new Policy & DPI Market Tracker , just published, the market for policy management (e.g., policy servers based on the PCRF standard) and DPI gear (now used mainly for policy-related tasks) topped $1 billion for the first time in 2011, growing 35 percent over the course of the year .. We expect it to continue to grow at a similar pace in 2012, and although growth will gradually slow, the market will be worth a whopping $2.7 billion by 2016 – and it will still be growing".

"In earlier years, the main beneficiaries were specialist vendors, mostly startups, but the size of the opportunity hasn't been lost on the bigger actors, and most have upped their game in this area, either through big internal investment programs (e.g., Alcatel-Lucent) or acquisition (e.g., Amdocs). That is paying off: At least on the policy server side of the market, the major vendors, led by Ericsson and Huawei, are gaining ground at the expense of the specialists, and now constitute more than half that segment by value"
