Nortel’s Strength in IP-PBX, Optical

And now for something different….some positive news for Nortel. According to Infonetics Research, Nortel leads the IP-PBX market – with Cisco and Avaya hot on its heels. That said, Infonetics said most of the PBX market’s growth is coming from EMEA, Asia and the Caribbean/Latin America while the North American market grew only 4%. Over the next five years, Infonetics expects the PBX market to grow by 82% while the TDM market will decline by 88%. There’s also good news from the optical market – will wonders ever cease?! – as global sales climbed 19% last year to $10.7-billion, driven by the metro equipment (+15%) and long-haul (+32%) markets. Infonetics principal analyst Michael Howard said it is the first time the optical market has grown since 2001. Nortel ranked second in worldwide optical network hardware behind Alcatel.
