Market Definition and Scope

Unified communications (UC) is the integration of the various tools and applications used within an enterprise and with external partners for business communications.

The key application segments and enabling platforms that form the total UC framework include the following:
• Enterprise Telephony—Includes KTS, WPBX, PBX, IP-PBX systems, IP hard phones and soft phones, and digital phones.
• Unified Messaging—Includes applications that integrate the storage and accessibility of voice, fax, and e-mail messages into a single mailbox, which can be accessed via email, telephone, Web browser, or a unified client. Also includes sales of voice mail systems, as they form an addressable opportunity for UM solutions.
• Conferencing and Collaboration—Includes audio and video conferencing infrastructure and endpoints (includes telepresence) and Web conferencing software.
• Mobility—Includes middleware applications and soft clients who enable the delivery of corporate desktop and voice communications via mobile devices.
• Unified Client, Presence and Integrated UC Application—Unified Client includes software clients that provide instant messaging capabilities and/or ability to launch other UC applications such as IP telephony and conferencing and collaboration with presence awareness.
- Presence and integrated UC applications include middleware applications, which provide a real-time status indicator of a user’s ability and willingness to communicate via different communication tools within a network or enables integration of multiple UC applications. Also includes all-in-one application servers, which provide presence, IM, call management, conferencing, and collaboration capabilities on one platform.
• Contact Centre Applications (ACD, CTI, IVR, Outbound, Multimedia Systems)—Includes product license sales of customer-facing applications in the contact centre. The applications included are automatic call distributors, computer telephony integration systems, interactive voice response systems, outbound dialers, and multimedia systems.

For the purpose of this study, the enterprise telephony vertical and horizontal segments are defined as follows:

Govt | Government | Others | Includes transportation and logistics, travel and hospitality, healthcare, ITeS, and other industries
Mfg | Manufacturing | Others | Includes transportation and logistics, travel and hospitality, healthcare, ITeS, and other industries

Horizontal Segmentation

• The list of vendors covered in the market share analysis is subjected to change according to evolving market landscape and vendors’ market performance.
• Only revenue from sales of customer premise equipment solutions are accounted for in this research. Other complimentary and related UC applications sold in the form of hosted services are tracked in other studies.
• Horizontal market size excludes revenue from sales to the service provider vertical.
• For integrated UC application servers, revenue is accounted for the entire server software sales and not apportioned to various functionalities such as presence, basic conferencing, and call management capabilities.
