Cisco #1 in Enterprise Voice AND #1 Enterprise Telephony Worldwide

Post by Steve Slattery, VP, Cisco Voice Technology GroupThe release of the Q1 2008 Enterprise Voice Market Share Report from Synergy Research Group, a leading research firm, marks a significant milestone for Cisco in Unified Communications. For the first time, Cisco took the number one market share position for Enterprise Telephony followed by Avaya, Nortel, Alcatel-Lucent and Siemens Enterprise. We are now selling more voice systems than all of the other vendors in less than ten years since we entered the market. (Note: Synergy defines Enterprise Telephony as Enterprise IP Telephony plus Traditional TDM Telephony, excluding VoIP gateways). Further, according to Synergy, Cisco remained the market leader in Enterprise Voice, IP Phone and Enterprise IP Telephony markets; and managed to post the only positive quarter among the large vendors with a growth rate of 0.9 percent sequentially. No matter how you count the revenues -be it IP or TDM -Cisco is now providing more customers with telephony solutions than any other vendor in the industry.
