REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Nov. 2010 /PRNewswire/ — Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, reported that the Unified Communications market expanded to its highest level since 2008 in the third quarter this year. Strong second half seasonality helped offset weakness in Europe as the Unified Communications market expanded 7 percent sequentially.

“The market rebounded strongly in the third quarter due to robust seasonal quarters from several of the larger vendors, especially in North America, which was able to offset weakness in Europe” commented Alan Weckel, Director at Dell’Oro Group. ”Despite pockets of weakness reappearing, we believe that the Unified Communications market will expand significantly in 2010 as existing vendors continue to invest and expand their software offerings and Microsoft begins to actively push Lync,” Weckel added.

Also, according to the report, vendors continue to migrate their installed base over to IP lines, although the process may take another decade to complete. The top eight vendors in the quarter that accounted for more than 80 percent of IP line shipments were: Aastra, Alcatel-Lucent, Avaya, Cisco, Mitel, NEC, Shoretel, and Siemens.

The Dell’Oro Group Enterprise Telephony Quarterly Report offers complete, in-depth coverage of the market with tables covering manufacturers’ revenue, average selling prices, line (analog/digital and IP) and unit shipments for PBX (IP, Hybrid, Traditional PBX, Traditional Key) and Telephones (IP and Legacy Business Phones).
