Convergence Summit Day 1 October 6, 2010

Posted by Matthew Townend in Uncategorized.

Day 1 of the convergence summit was well attended with myself & Stephanie Watson from MZA starting the conference program speaking to a full house. Stephanie did a thorough review of the PBX market , she told the audience how the UK shipments of pbx extensions fell sharply by 23% to just over 2.1 million. Stephanie’s presentation also demonstrated the dominance of Avaya now they have purchased Nortel with 30% of new shipments coming from them in 2009. I presented on SIP trunking/hosted market showing the figures previously published on this blog with a hosted market of just under 500,000 & SIP trunking of 160,000 channels in June, we will publish new figures here in the coming month.

Other highlights for me of the day included talking to the Snom team who introduced to me their new Snom One product. This product is a Software based IP telephone system, that look like the Swyx approach. Although initially for enterprise it is also going to be available for carriers. This is a strategic move away from just selling handsets for snom and it will be interesting to see how they progress with this strategy. Also i visited Voiceflex who announced recording in the cloud for their SIP trunking services yesterday, this trend to put more features in the cloud is one illume expects to see continued in the coming year.
