Report: 435 Million Mobile SIP Users Projected By 2012

October 2, 2007
Informa Telecoms & Media has released a new report entitled, Mobile Converged Devices: Enabling IMS, SIP, UMA &VCC Services. This report forecasts 435 million mobile SIP users by 2012.
The research points out that sales of mobile phones with active SIP functionality will reach 275 million units in 2007, with an inflection taking place between 2010 and 2011.
Within the mobile handset space, SIP is essentially split into two main variants of IETF SIP, also known as Naked SIP, and 3GPP SIP, which is also called IMS SIP.
IETF SIP is believed by many to be the better choice to use as the basis of a convergence platform due to its acceptance in both the fixed and mobile camps and for its ability to enable access to open Internet services including wireless VoIP.
Malik Saadi Principal Analyst at Informa Telecoms & Media and lead author of the report says “…growth will be mainly driven by the strong will of device vendors to get involved in the content space but also by the increasing number of new entrants among VoIP and Internet content providers who are determined to challenge the mobile operator walled-garden service offering”.
In terms of devices, sales of handsets with active SIP were as low as 4 million units in 2006. Nokia currently enjoys the largest SIP enabled product portfolio of all leading handset vendors, with over 35 SIP capable devices among its E-Series and high end N-Series.
