  Infonetics: Enterprise Telephony Continues Downward Slide; UC Applications
  Lone Bright Spot in 3Q12

Business Wire

BOSTON -- November 26, 2012

Market research firm Infonetics Research released vendor market share
standings and forecasts from its 3rd quarter 2012 (3Q12) Enterprise Unified
Communications, VoIP, and TDM Equipment report. (Detailed market analysis will
be published December 3.)

ANALYST NOTE

“This has been a tough year for the enterprise telephony market,” says Diane
Myers, principal analyst for VoIP, UC, and IMS at Infonetics Research.
“Quarterly year-over-year declines continue as businesses push out spending
where existing telephony solutions still get the job done.”

Myers continues: “That said, UC applications have been a real sweet spot. The
demand for tools that aid employee productivity and flexibility is fueling
growth in this segment, and Microsoft’s Lync has been the primary beneficiary,
enjoying over 40% sequential growth in the third quarter.”

ENTERPRISE TELEPHONY MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  *In 3Q12 the global enterprise PBX market (TDM, hybrid, and pure IP PBXs)
    is up 2.8% from the previous quarter but down 5.6% from the year-ago 3rd
    quarter, due to continued softness in EMEA
  *Revenue is declining at a faster rate than shipments: for the first time,
    the average revenue per PBX line slipped below $200
  *Cisco is the PBX/KTS revenue market share leader for a 5th consecutive
    quarter
