Steady recovery in PBX market
|23 мая 2011|
The worldwide enterprise telephony and unified communication equipment market, including TDM PBX, KTS, and IP PBX systems, IP phones, VoIP gateways, and UC applications, showed a 4 percent dip to $2.52 billion in the first quarter, from 4Q2010, according to a new report.
But Infonetics Research, in its quarterly Enterprise Unified Communication, VoIP, and TDM Equipment report said not all regions were down in the quarter; Asia Pacific, which generally has strong first quarter numbers, delivered as expected with a 7 percent in increase in enterprise telephony revenue; NEC, because of its strength in the region also had a strong quarter. North America, meanwhile, showed just a 1 percent retreat.
The pure IP PBX segment was the only segment of the market in positive territory for the quarter, with a sequential gain of less than 1 percent over the fourth quarter of 2010, helped by positive sales from NEC, Shoretel, and Siemens. Avaya, meanwhile, maintained its lead in the overall PBX market for the second quarter in a row.
"The global PBX market is typically down in the first quarter following a strong fourth quarter, and the first quarter of 2011 was no exception as the overall market dipped 2.6 percent, dragged down by slowing TDM PBX sales as businesses continue to shift to IP," said Diane Myers, directing analyst for VoIP and IMS at Infonetics. "The good news is the quarter was up 8.5 percent over the year-ago quarter, signally a return to stability."
