“With solid third quarter results, the carrier and market is on track for positive year-over-year growth due to a handful of variables that are coming together,” notes , principal analyst for VoIP, UC, and IMS at . “First, we’re entering the long-tail of the legacy softswitch and trunking gateway market, with opportunities for early equipment replacement and new deals that will help slow declines and provide stabilization.
