lower revenues of Rs 113,188 crore in 2011-12 compared to Rs 114,133 crore in F
Y2010-11, according Voice&Data magazine.

Nearly half of the telecom equipment revenue came from
carrier equipment manufacturers, which saw a dip of 5.06 percent to touch
Rs 55,333 crore during the year. In the previous year, FY10-11, the segment had
registered Rs 58,285 crore revenue.

The user device segment that includes mobile handsets, fixed phones,
data cards and tablet computers, contributed more than one-third to the total

percent from Rs 34,557 crore a year ago.

The Top 10 Club

Mobile handset maker Nokia had the highest revenue during
the year followed by Korean electronics major Samsung. They were followed by
telecom equipment manufacturers like Cisco, Huawei, Nokia Siemens Networks,
Ericsson, and Alcatel-Lucent. The Top10 club also saw inclusion of software
companies like TCS, Wipro and Tech Mahindra.

The decline in the carrier equipment revenues is due to policy
uncertainty which restrained many telecom operators from releasing large scale
network expansion orders.

The Top 10 club saw Samsung registering highest growth of
57.34 percent to capture the second position with revenues of Rs 9,000 crore,
riding high on its smartphone and tablet portfolio.

transmission, telecom turnkey and wireless infrastructure were the biggest
losers. Transmission segment dropped 21.88 percent to report revenues of Rs
3,825 crore (from Rs 4,896 crore last year). The telecom turnkey segment
revenue dropped 65.27 percent to Rs 1,862 crore (from Rs 5,362 crore). The
wireless infrastructure segment dipped 40.51 percent to record revenue of Rs
10,930 crore from Rs 18,374 crore a year ago.

The enterprise equipment business grew by 8.89 percent to
reach Rs 23,183 crore in FY11-12 from Rs 21,291 crore in FY10-11. Enterprise
cost saving equipment segments like audio-video conferencing and voice
solutions showed significant growth of 16 percent and 15 percent respectively.
Modem and router industry saw a negative growth as enterprises demanded

router and switch.
