Summarized statistics 2010 on VoIP and Unified Communications from Infonetics Research
Telecommunications industry market research company ‘’Infonetics Research’’ has distributed statistical data on the financials results of 2010, named as “Enterprise Unified Communications, VoIP, and TDM equipment”. In accordance with the facts and findings telephony and unified communications market is demonstrating modest recovery, finalizing 2010 with 7.4 percent growth. A general global shift from Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) to VoIP is the recovery booster.
The market of enterprise level telephony hardware surpassed $8.3 billion in 2010, compared with $7.7 billion in 2009. The third quarter of continuous growth in enterprise telephony equipment ensured the PBX and Unified Communications market back to annual positive indicators in 2010.

“Buying by small businesses and large enterprises in Central and Latin America propelled a 20 percent increase in PBX spending in that region in 4Q10,” stated Diane Myers, analyst for VoIP and IMS at Infonetics Research. “A reduction in spending by small and large business in North America led to a 5 percent decline here in 4Q10.” 

A sequence of four quarters of decline has been observed in US and Canada PBX spending. But still, the region provided the largest input to growth in enterprise telephony market last year, as the North America have been ahead of the worldwide economic recovery. Normally leading technology vendors and manufacturers are still competing to get new customers as enterprises moves to IP and UC solutions. Companies Avaya and Cisco, PBX equipment vendors, demonstrated steady revenue growth in 2010, with Avaya surpassing Cisco by a hair for the year.

The report stated how Cisco and Avaya fight for dominance in enterprise telephony market with Avaya closing the gap with Cisco due to its Nortel acquisition.
