A recently published report “Global Softswitch Market 2010–2014” by Infiniti Research reveals that the Global Softswitch market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.5 percent over the period 2010–2014. The report, which covers the Americas as well as the EMEA and APAC regions, indicates that the market is being driven by the low vendor lock-in risk benefits it offers.

According to Technavio’s industry analyst, “The key factor that is driving service providers to adopt Softswitches is the reduced risk of vendor lock-in. This is because Softswitches are not dependent on any hardware components as is the case with traditional network switches. Softswitch APIs can function on any given hardware, and they normally use computer servers to carry out various processes.”
