Infonetics Research’s newly released vendor market share standings have found Cisco to be the PBX market leader for the 5th quarter in a row. The report contains stats and forecasts based off the Enterprise Unified Communications, VoIP and TDM Equipment findings from this past quarter. Infonetics says the global enterprise PBX market (TDM, hybrid and pure IP PBXs) was up 2.8 percent from the previous quarter, but down 5.6 percent from the year-ago quarter due to a soft economy in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region.
“This has been a tough year for the enterprise telephony market,” said Diane Myers, principal analyst for VoIP, UC, and IMS at Infonetics Research. “Quarterly year-over-year declines continue as businesses push out spending where existing telephony solutions still get the job done. That said, unified communication (UC) applications have been a real sweet spot. The demand for tools that aid employee productivity and flexibility is fueling growth in this segment, and Microsoft’s Lync has been the primary beneficiary, enjoying over 40 percent sequential growth in the third quarter.”
