According to a new Q3 data from Synergy Research Group, total video infrastructure revenues for the quarter were $9.4 billion, marginally up on the previous quarter and 3% up on the third quarter of 2012. In term of vendor's market share, Cisco has maintained is leadership in four of the five main video infrastructure market segments. Surprisingly, in the video client segment which includes hardwares & softwares such as set-top boxes, residential gateways and associated software/middleware, ARRIS which acquired Motorola Home took the top position followed by Pace. Synergy also highlighted another major change in the quarter as HP overtook IBM to claim the second position in the media data center segment.
“Growth in some of the more mature segments has been rather sluggish, dragging the overall market growth rate down” said Synergy Research Group’s John Dinsdale. “The segments driving revenue expansion have been media data center and content distribution, and we expect this trend to continue as service providers invest in strategically important advanced IP networks such as IP video infrastructure, in pursuit of higher ARPU and higher revenues.” Read More Accenture Supports Endesa’s Roll-Out of More Than 13 Million Smart Meters
