The Wireless Packet Core (WPC) market revenues grew 24% over the last year during the third quarter of 2011 as service provider demand for wireless data subscriber management remained robust.

­According to Dell'Oro Group, Ericsson maintained its market share lead in revenues, followed by Huawei and Cisco.

"Over 100 service providers have committed to launching LTE networks. With over one-third of these having commercially launched, the Evolved Packet Core (EPC) equipment supporting these 4G networks is now 5% of the overall packet core market," said Chris DePuy, Analyst at Dell'Oro Group.

"The EPC segment provides an opportunity for new vendors to enter this high-growth market, which we expect to grow over 200% in 2012."

The report shows that overall wireless packet core revenues reached over $740 million in the third quarter of 2011.

WPC equipment is data-carrying and data-managing equipment used by service providers to support the wireless device access to data and advanced services.
