PHOENIX, AZ -- (Marketwire) -- 11/26/12 -- Against a backdrop of global economic instability and political unrest, the Worldwide Carrier Routing & Switching markets reflected typical cyclical performance, remaining slightly flat in Q3. ACG Research anticipates global economic uncertainty, a challenging market and aggressive competition will continue to put pressure on vendors' pricing and margins. "Enterprise CEOs will, most likely, remain conservative and more focused in their IT spending and hiring for the remainder of the year," states Ray Mota, managing partner. "These factors will continue to force vendors to innovate and develop technology that can deliver significant operational savings as well as address market demands for new and cutting-edge services that are application focused. Despite some vendors providing low guidance for Q4, AT&T announced a CapEx increase of $2.5 billion per year."
Q3 Total Worldwide Carrier Routing & Switching market posted revenue of $2.75B. The global market decreased 1.7% q/q and 2.5% y/y. Core Routing revenues were down 1.9% q/q and 9.6% y/y. Edge Routing and Switching revenues were down 1.7% q/q and down 0.4% y/y.
Cisco posted a total worldwide decline of 0.3% q/q and a decrease of 0.8% y/y. In spite of the decrease Cisco reports that its CRS and ASR series continue to demonstrate strong traction. Alcatel-Lucent decreased 2.16% q/q but was solidly up 8.2% y/y. ALU's 100 Gig is a big differentiator for the company, and the company continues to see more sales traction with this port for core solutions, edge and metro. Juniper increased worldwide routing revenue 1.2%, q/q but was down 7.7% y/y. The company cited the reduction in service providers purchasing high-end networking equipment, difficulty penetrating new markets with new products and strong competition from Cisco as factors influencing its quarterly results.
------------------------------------------------------ Vendor Q-Q MS Point +/- Y-Y MS Point +/- ------------------------------------------------------ Cisco +0.8 +1.0 ------------------------------------------------------ Alcatel-Lucent -0.1 +1.8 ------------------------------------------------------ Juniper +0.5 -1.0 ------------------------------------------------------ Tellabs -0.1 -0.4 ------------------------------------------------------ Huawei -0.2 -0.2 ------------------------------------------------------
In the US the threat of the "fiscal cliff" is creating a tremendous uncertainty and service providers are monitoring it closely in order to get some visibility on what kind of impact it will have on consumer, small, mid and enterprise business spending. The threat of another recession could potentially extend service providers' build-out of new services that, in turn, could impact their CapEx spending. ACG plans to monitor this closely in 2013 with our service provider capacity index service, which tracks the rate of change in capacity and how "hot" SPs are running their networks.
QUARTERLY TREND and DRIVER HIGHLIGHTS
- Core network traffic is growing in excess of 50% per year and new services such as content-rich digital media, cloud and mobile placing new requirements on the network.
- Competitive factors such as lower pricing and reduced margins are putting pressure on the routing segment.
- Interest in mobility and cloud computing continues to grow, especially with SPs that recognize that to have a cost-effective, scalable, automated data center that enables them to offer new services/products they need technology that can deliver significant operational savings.
- In a recent ACG survey, 78% of respondents reported that they have SDN plans that were either under discussion or were planned deployment. Interest in SDN has increased in momentum for two primary reasons: 1) a less than positive macroeconomic environment and 2) providers are searching for a new way to deliver new services and realize significant operational savings while increasing service velocity.

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, will discuss how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

Be Among the First 100 to Attend & Receive a Smart Beacon. The Physical Web is an open web project within the Chrome team at Google. Scott Jenson leads a team that is working to leverage the scalability and openness of the web to talk to smart devices. The Physical Web uses bluetooth low energy beacons to broadcast an URL wirelessly using an open protocol. Nearby devices can find all URLs in the room, rank them and let the user pick one from a list. Each device is, in effect, a gateway to a web page. This unlocks entirely new use cases so devices can offer tiny bits of information or simple i...

TechCrunch reported that "Berlin-based relayr, maker of the WunderBar, an Internet of Things (IoT) hardware dev kit which resembles a chunky chocolate bar, has closed a $2.3 million seed round, from unnamed U.S. and Switzerland-based investors. The startup had previously raised a €250,000 friend and family round, and had been on track to close a €500,000 seed earlier this year — but received a higher funding offer from a different set of investors, which is the $2.3M round it’s reporting."
