Avaya leads global PBX market in 3Q11, with about a quarter of world’s PBX revenue

According to Infonetics
Research, Avaya leads the PBX market with about a quarter of the
world’s PBX revenue.

Global PBX/KTS phone system revenue grew
5.5 percent sequentially in 3Q11 to $2.15 billion.

“For the fourth straight
quarter, Avaya leads the highly competitive PBX market, with about a
quarter of the world’s PBX revenue in 3Q11. Avaya is holding onto its revenue
lead with steady shipments and healthy ASPs due to continued increases in IP
endpoint sales,” said Diane Myers, directing analyst for VoIP and IMS at
Infonetics Research.

“Cisco is a close second, posting
sequential and year-over-year revenue increases in 3Q11. Cisco’s overall ASPs
declined in the quarter due to special promotional packages and pricing that
helped spur activity,” Myers added.

The report finds the global PBX market is
up 6.6 percent from the year-ago third quarter (3Q10) continuing the slow and
steady recovery recorded throughout 2011 on a year-over-year basis.

Unified communications revenue increased
15.2 percent sequentially in 3Q11. Microsoft has shown its presence in the
UC space with 25 percent year-over-year Lync revenue growth.

The report also finds that VoIP gateways
revenue decreased with a small decline of 1.5 percent.

By regions, EMEA stands out for the
quarter, reversing a string of losses with 11.0 percent sequential growth in
PBX revenue. PBX revenue in Asia Pacific is up 11 percent year-over-year.

Businesses continue to migrate to IP-based
phone systems, evinced by the revenue split in 3Q11: Hybrid IP PBXs make up
nearly 2/3 of global revenue; pure IP PBXs continue to grow as a proportion of
the market, now making up nearly 1/3 and growing, and TDM PBXs continue to
decline overall.
