NEC’s continuous innovation and commitment pays off

Hilversum, 23 June 2014 – NEC Enterprise Solutions today announced that NEC has become the leading vendor in the global PBX extensions/licenses market, taking the no. 1 position as worldwide market leader in MZA’s latest Global PBX/IP PBX Market report over Q1 2014.

With a market share of 13%, NEC remained ahead of Avaya and overtook Cisco. “NEC’s continued strength in Asia Pacific, as well as strong share growth in North America helped it to maintain global market share and take top position,” stated Will Parsons of MZA.

MZA’s report noted that NEC retained its Q1 2013 global leadership in solutions below 100 extensions/licenses (excluding Micro PBX products) in Q1 2014, repeating its 17% market share in that segment. “NEC performed well in its home region and improved its volume growth in North America, Latin America and EMEA,” commented Parsons.

The success underscores the strength of NEC’s portfolio of communications solutions, the company’s commitment to expand its global enterprise communications footprint and the ability to serve customers worldwide.

NEC offers a broad range of enterprise communications solutions – ranging from small to very large systems – that effectively support enterprise and SMB customers whose requirements span from traditional TDM to full IP and 100% software-based deployments.
