Companies mentioned in this article: Infonetics Research

CAMPBELL, Calif. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its 1st quarter 2014 (1Q14) Enterprise Session Border Controllers market share, size, and forecasts report, which tracks eSBC session shipments and vendor revenue.

ANALYST NOTE

Cisco notched another quarter at the top of the enterprise session border controller (eSBC) market share leaderboard, turning its commanding position in enterprise voice and data solutions into an advantage as it sells its eSBCs,” notes Diane Myers, principal analyst for VoIP, UC, and IMS at Infonetics Research.

“There were no major shake-ups among the other leading vendors—AudioCodes, Dialogic, Ingate, Oracle, and Sonus—in terms of positioning, though Sonus put up the largest sequential revenue gain of any vendor in the first quarter of 2014,” continues Myers.

ENTERPRISE SBC MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  • Globally, enterprise session border controller (eSBC) revenue totaled $60.3 million in 1Q14, up 1% sequentially, but down 9% from the year-ago 1st quarter
  • North America continues to be the primary region for the eSBC market, representing more than three-quarters of eSBC sales in 1Q14
  • Meanwhile, businesses in other regions, particularly Europe, are accelerating adoption of SIP trunking, which will positively impact eSBC sales outside of North America over time
  • Enterprises with between 101 and 5,000 employees made up the largest segment of eSBC sessions in 1Q14
  • The average revenue per session for eSBCs, currently $29, is considerably lower than that of traditional VoIP-TDM gateways
  • Infonetics forecasts the worldwide enterprise SBC market to grow to $433 million in 2018
