High Availability High Reliability Telecommunications Middleware
Market Opportunities, Strategies, and Forecasts, 2007 to 2013

The convergence of IT and communications infrastructure is placing complex high availability, system clustering, and manageability requirements on system development. These requirements create tremendous problems with respect to scalability, development cost, time-to-market, and resources allocated to core competencies.

Middleware is positioned to decrease ongoing maintenance cost associated with infrastructure software. The consumer and corporate demand for more sophisticated telecom services, the viability of standards technologies and the emergence of new competitors are leading industry players to view COTS software as an imperative.

The technical requirements for deploying real-time services over global networks continue to grow. Applications must work in real-time, with low latency, and scale to millions of users. Yet traditional enterprise software solutions have reached their performance limits. Complex legacy applications are difficult, if not impossible, to grow or change.

The growing shift of the telecommunications market to a modular communications platform architecture will enable carriers to more rapidly deploy new services, reduce operating costs, and easily scale with demand. The success of AdvancedTCA solutions is built from interoperable, carrier grade, high-performance off-the-shelf building blocks including Intel® processors and high availability middleware.

High availability system development requirements are evolving in the context of the evolution of blade servers. Blade servers are small, dense computers tied together with software that balances the processing workload between them. One refrigerator-size mainframe is more efficient than units that hold more than 300 blade servers. The mainframe is significantly more efficient and reliable than 500 of the smallest servers that can fit in the same-size rack. The mainframe systems are far more efficient than densely packed server systems.

High availability high reliability telecommunications middleware market forecasts indicate that markets of $792.6 million in 2006 are anticipated to reach $2.1 billion by 2013. Markets are anticipated to grow in response to the need of all equipment providers to adapt to open systems replacing current proprietary middleware systems.
