Aiding for lawful interception has become mandatory for the network providers due to the laws drafted by the governments of various nations. European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), Communication Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA), Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions/ American Standardization Institution (ANSI/ ATIS), SORM and CableLabs/ PacketCable are some of the institutions/bodies that have set rules and standards for carrying out LI efficiently. Various countries across the globe follow these standards and adhere to the norms set by the regulatory bodies in their respective regions.
Lawful interception (LI) market is witnessing tremendous growth and is speedily picking pace in its lifecycle. Based on the technological strength, it can be safely assumed that LI will be a prominent part of telecommunication market in the years to come. The probable growth that is forecast in the LI market is anticipated based on the rising criminal activities which are carried out over the communication networks using sophisticated communication devices. The growing criminal activities have directly led to the rise in number of interceptions carried out over the communication channels. Additionally, growing adoption of Next Generation Network technology (NGN) will facilitate lawful interception of voice/video calls, text messages, chats, etc. by channelizing these forms of communication over a single network. Audio call interception had the highest revenue during 2013, which accounted for about 32% of the overall market. Video interception is expected to be the fastest growing market segment projecting a CAGR of 33.3% during the 2013-2020.
The file transfer applications are expected to experience the increased lawful interception activities. Due to rapid growth and significant large scale adoption of digital file interception; the file transfer interception is expected to be most prominent market by 2020. The telephonic communications (PSTN) would reduce over the period. However, rising mobile communications and VoIP calls would maintain the market potency of the voice communication in interception. The VoIP solutions are increasingly being used for conversations due to free applications such as Skype, Google Talk, etc. Numerous enterprises are implementing IP telephonic systems within their premises for communication purposes. Such personal and official communications would be key factor driving the interception of voice communication.
The data downloads, and text messaging is another attractive area of interception. The law enforcement agencies often intercept the text messaging, due to ability to carry more information in small volumes of data. Individuals prefer text messaging over voice conservation due to lesser cost and data requirement. Critical information could be communicated in casual text chatting. Due to this, the interception over text messages is implemented by LEAs.
