MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., July 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the enterprise DECT phone market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Siemens Enterprise Communications with the 2011 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Market Share Leadership to be presented July 18, 2012, at the annual Best Practices Awards dinner in Boston, MA. Siemens Enterprise Communications has achieved its market leadership spot due to its large active client base, ability to generate positive brand recognition, innovative design, and excellent product quality.

Siemens Enterprise Communications is a leading global provider of end-to-end enterprise communications solutions, offering a wide variety of voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) solutions; unified communications and collaboration solutions, devices and clients; network infrastructure and security; as well as cloud and hosted solutions. Its large and open standards-based portfolio has made Siemens Enterprise Communications the vendor of choice among both large and small enterprises.

"The DECT handsets connect to Siemens Enterprise Communications' converged communication platforms called OpenScape or HiPath," said Frost & Sullivan Program Director Elka Popova. "The HiPath 4000 solution alone has more than 15 million users worldwide and represents a huge installed base for DECT phones.  As companies begin to demand more on-site mobility there is a growth opportunity for DECT, especially in IP environments."

Siemens Enterprise Communications has an original design manufacturer (ODM) relationship with Gigaset Communications. This allows the company to leverage the synergy between the DECT enterprise and consumer markets and benefit from its technological innovation, economies of scale and design, as evidenced by numerous design awards.

"Furthermore, as part of the ODM agreement between the two companies, Siemens Enterprise Communications receives handsets from Gigaset Communications that are tailor-made to its specifications," notes Popova. "Knowing how to combine great design with customer needs has positioned Siemens Enterprise Communications as a market leader in the enterprise DECT phone market."

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated excellence in capturing the highest market share within its industry. The award recognizes the company's leadership position within the industry in terms of revenues or units, as specified.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research in order to identify best practices in the industry.
