In der aktuellen Ausgabe von "FMC Equipment, Phones, and Subscribers" prognostiziert das Unternehmen 67,3 Millionen Nutzer von Konvergenzdiensten mit nahtlosem Übergang zwischen Mobilfunk und WLAN. Dieser werde überwiegend über UMS generiert, auch wenn die Nutzerzahl über IMS ebenfalls signifikant steige.

Dabei bezeichnet Infonetics T-Mobile in den USA und Orange in Europa als diejenigen Unternehmen, die den Markt mit UMA Deployments vorantreiben. Dagegen seien in Asien eher IMS basierte Lösungen unter anderem durch NTT DoCoMo und KDDI wahrscheinlich.

Nokia sei mit deutlichem Abstand Marktführer bei den Endgeräten, so Infonetics, gefolgt von HTC und Sony Ericsson.

T-Mobile USA, Orange heat up FMC infrastructure market; dual mode cellular/WiFi phones hit $27B in 2007
 
CAMPBELL, California, April 11, 2008—According to a new report from analyst firm Infonetics Research, the worldwide fixed-mobile convergence infrastructure equipment market, including UMA network controllers and multi-access convergence gateways, grew nearly 5-fold from 2006 to 2007 and is forecast to grow another 10-fold between 2007 and 2011.
The report,
FMC Equipment, Phones, and Subscribers, says the growth surge in the FMC infrastructure market is due mainly to large FMC deployments being rolled out by T-Mobile USA in the US and by Orange in Europe.
“The fixed-mobile convergence market, which was just emerging last year with strong UMA deployments that started in Europe, has now reached significance in North America with T-Mobile USA’s FMC buildout. Meanwhile, UMA remains unpopular in Asia Pacific where large players such as NTT DoCoMo, KDDI, etc. are likely to offer IMS-based seamless FMC,” said Stéphane Téral, principal analyst at Infonetics Research.
