Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Yealink for Outstanding Growth in the World Enterprise IP Telephony Endpoint Market

- The company has grown rapidly, leveraging its high-quality, competitively priced product portfolio, global footprint, strong customer service and strategic tie-ups

MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the enterprise communications platforms and endpoints market, Frost & Sullivan presents Yealink with the 2012 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Growth Leadership, which recognizes the highest compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for the past three years. Yealink showed a striking CAGR of 83 percent during 2009-2011 in its IP phone shipment, positioning it as one of the top SIP phone providers in the world, as well as a fierce competitor in the overall IP desktop phone market.

"Growing its SIP phone sales year over year, Yealink has achieved this leadership position due to successfully applying a best-bang-for-the-buck strategy, providing the highest ratio of value to cost, leveraging extensive customer international knowledge, and growing its partner relationships," said Frost & Sullivan ICT Team Leader and Senior Industry Analyst Alaa Saayed. "The company's IP devices have gradually gained the reputation of high-quality endpoints that offer compelling functionality at a compelling price point."

Among the top five SIP phone brands in the industry and the most popular Chinese brand in the Western world, Yealink offers three product lines: IP video phones, IP phones, and USB phones. These devices not only match the top international requirements in terms of quality and features, but are also very competitively priced. Further, the company's R&D department continuously introduces emerging technologies into the product lines.

A Yealink IP endpoint can cost as low as USD 10 for a USB phone, USD 59 for an IP desktop phone, and USD 389 for a video phone. The company has set and implemented a unified manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) globally for each type of phone to ensure uniformity in the sales process, and in the quality and benefits delivered to users and distributors.

Yealink products also offer competitive functionality, such as TI chipset and TI voice engine, XML/LDAP phonebooks, auto-provisioning, Gigabit Ethernet ports, LCD color screens, touchscreen technologies and embedded video capabilities. The company also provides customized features and capabilities to meet the requirements for specific industries.

"All functions and capabilities for these endpoints are easy to deploy and easy to use, which further contributes to the overall value proposition of Yealink's solution," noted Saayed. "The company supplements its go-to-market strategy with a fast and effective technical support."

Yealink continuously strives to transfer its growing expertise as a leading endpoint vendor to its various partners and contacts across different regions. Furthermore, it has a strong focus on interoperability with different communication platform vendors. The company already has certifications issued by more than 80 international VoIP systems vendors, such as Asterisk, Avaya, BroadSoft, and Genesys—among others.

Significantly, Yealink leverages knowledge it acquires from its extensive international customer base—it sells its products in more than 140 countries across the world—to present each region with the optimal balance of price and quality of the products. Other unique regional characteristics that the company seeks to address in product development and marketing strategies include telecommunication regulatory policies, security and safety requirements, and compatibility with existing infrastructure.

Overall, with a high-quality, yet cost-effective product portfolio, advanced technology, a good understanding of international customer needs and a large set of partners, Yealink has successfully established itself as one of the leading market brands in the IP desktop phone market.

"Its leadership position in the IP desktop phone market is proven by the company's impressive growth rate in terms of IP phone shipment within the last three years," concluded Saayed. "Yealink is well-positioned to leverage its strength to further expand in the enterprise segment."

In recognition of Yealink's continued focus on delivering IP endpoints with compelling functionality and competitive pricing, Frost & Sullivan presents Yealink with the 2012 Growth Leadership Award in the world enterprise IP telephony endpoint market.

WebRTC adoption has generated a wave of creative uses of communications and collaboration through websites, sales apps, customer care and business applications. As WebRTC has become more mainstream it has evolved to use cases beyond the original peer-to-peer case, which has led to a repeating requirement for interoperability with existing infrastructures. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Graham Holt, Executive Vice President of Daitan Group, will cover implementation examples that have enabled ea...
IoT offers a value of almost $4 trillion to the manufacturing industry through platforms that can improve margins, optimize operations & drive high performance work teams. By using IoT technologies as a foundation, manufacturing customers are integrating worker safety with manufacturing systems, driving deep collaboration and utilizing analytics to exponentially increased per-unit margins. However, as Benoit Lheureux, the VP for Research at Gartner points out, “IoT project implementers often ...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

Identity is in everything and customers are looking to their providers to ensure the security of their identities, transactions and data. With the increased reliance on cloud-based services, service providers must build security and trust into their offerings, adding value to customers and improving the user experience. Making identity, security and privacy easy for customers provides a unique advantage over the competition.
There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...
If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
