Microsoft Extends Lead to 23% of the IPTV Middleware Market, According to ABI Research

Microsoft’s Mediaroom IPTV platform leads the IPTV middleware market and continues to grow in market share as of mid-2012 to 23% of deployed IPTV boxes, despite an environment that is beginning to fragment with many small and regional players. Chinese system integrators ZTE and Huawei also play strongly in the market, based on strong and growing IPTV platforms within China, notably those by China Telecom, which use different suppliers on a regional basis. “There is a strong split in the IPTV middleware market between system integrators providing an entire solution and specialists in applications and customer experience,” according to Sam Rosen, ABI Research practice director for TV & video.

“With the exception of Cisco, who recently purchased NDS, the system integrator’s role in customer experience will likely decline over the next few years; instead, this role will be left to client-centric middleware companies with better user experience,” continued Sam Rosen. “In addition to Microsoft, companies such as Viaccess-Orca (a subsidiary of France Telecom), Netgem, and others, all have a distinct philosophy on how to create an IPTV system.” Overall growth in IPTV households, however, means that few companies are likely to lose out. IPTV households will grow from 80 million in 2012 to 117 million in 2017, with growth driven by Asia-Pacific.

Concerns about security, downtime and latency, budgets, and general unfamiliarity with cloud technologies continue to create hesitation for many organizations that truly need to be developing a cloud strategy. Hybrid cloud solutions are helping to elevate those concerns by enabling the combination or orchestration of two or more platforms, including on-premise infrastructure, private clouds and/or third-party, public cloud services. This gives organizations more comfort to begin their digital transformation without a complete overhaul of their existing infrastructure - serving as a sort of "missing link" for transition to cloud utilization.
