Exact: Enterprise SBC market up 55 percent

Tools

Exact Ventures, the brand new research firm from industry veteran and former Dell'Oro analyst Greg Collins, has hit the wires with an update on the enterprise session border controller (SBC) market, saying the segment jumped 55 percent in the first quarter this year, compared to the same quarter in 2010. Hosted unified communications and SIP trunking were among factors that played a role in the growth, according to Exact.

As in the service provider SBC segment, Acme Packet is the lead dog in the enterprise market, with Cisco Systems in second place, followed by Ingate and Sipera. Collins noted, however, that the enterprise SBC market remains very fragmented below that top tier, which means declining prices may loom.
