REDWOOD CITY, Calif., June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Dell'Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, reported that PBX market revenues declined sequentially in the first quarter and are forecast to decline year-over-year for 2010. Revenues in the first quarter were impacted by seasonality, weakness in Europe, and customer pause ahead of new releases.

"We believe that PBX market revenues will continue to weaken in 2010 despite a rebound in line shipments, because the market is heavily weighted towards Europe and transactions relying on the Euro," commented Alan Weckel, Director at Dell'Oro Group.  "We estimate that a 10 percent decline in the Euro would remove over $20 million in PBX market revenues each quarter this year," added Weckel.  

According to the report, vendors continue to migrate their installed base to IP lines.  Although the process may take another decade to complete, the top eight vendors (Aastra, Alcatel-Lucent, Avaya, Cisco, Mitel, NEC, Shoretel, and Siemens) accounted for 80 percent of IP line shipments during the quarter.
