SS7 Signaling Transfer Points (STP), Forecast & Vendor Report, 2015-2020, April 2016
The SS7 STP market is experiencing a resurgence based on modernization projects, vendor replacements, and security features/upgrades. While the market came in slightly less than anticipated ($488 M versus $500 M) for 2015, the overall trend is up and we still expect a growing market through 2017 and a slow decline thereafter.
Oracle and Huawei continue to lead the market STP market with over 70% share combined with Ericsson in third position. STPs will remain a viable business for many vendors given the longer-term demand for STP products through continual modernization investments, plus maintenance and security services.
