IP Phone Sales Top $500 Million in 2Q2006

Johanne Torres, TMCnet Contributing Editor

According to a recently published report from research firm Dell’Oro Group, revenue of IP telephones sales during 2006's second quarter reached more than $500 million, growing 42 percent year-over-year.
The firm identified Cisco as a provider that is rapidly gaining ground in the market with sales of a million IP telephones for this year’s second quarter. Dell’ (News - Alert)Oro pointed out that the provider often sells IP telephones in combination with IP PBXs.
“IP telephony is currently driving PBX market sales as a result of enterprises increasingly adopting Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and retiring their traditional PBX systems,” said Dell’Oro Group’s director of IP telephony research, Steve Raab, in a statement.
Raab continued: “As a major proponent of IP telephony, Cisco is gaining PBX market share in all major geographic markets around the globe, in North America, EMEA, Asia Pacific and rest of the world, and challenging incumbent vendors, Avaya (News - Alert) and Nortel (News - Alert), for market leadership.”
