Siemens Enterprise Communications has captured additional market share globally, as reported by two industry analyst firms.
According to Dell'Oro Group's 1Q12 Enterprise Telephony Quarterly report, Siemens Enterprise Communications' voice platforms, including OpenScape Voice, marked two consecutive quarters of consistent growth to capture new global enterprise voice market share.
Siemens Enterprise Communications now holds the second place position based on revenue for the first quarter of 2012, moving up from third place in reports. In addition, share of total lines shipped also increased over the previous quarter.
MZA reported strong growth for Siemens Enterprise Communications globally, in its FastView Analysis for the World Corded IP/IP PBX market in Q1 2012.
The report showed Siemens Enterprise Communications with an overall increase in market share driven by a 23 per cent increase in total lines shipped from the first quarter of 2011 to the first quarter of 2012, while both top global competitors saw declines in that period.
MZA also reported that Siemens Enterprise Communications experienced a 52 per cent increase in the number of IP lines shipped in the same time period.
This momentum is driven by key customer wins across all geographies with global accounts and large enterprises as well as a reinvigorated channel ecosystem and SMB customer base.
According to MZA, In 2011 Siemens Enterprise Communications was the fastest growing vendor in the sub 100 IP extension space in the UK.
Chris Hummel, Chief Commercial Officer for the vendor, said: "We plan to leverage this momentum and energy in the coming quarters as we continue to see demand from current customers and new prospects for unified communications solutions."
"IP telephony and SIP are now widely accepted. The connectivity has become more affordable and businesses are moving key services to the cloud. We see a majority of new RFPs requesting hosted."
