Campbell, CALIFORNIA (June 2, 2015)—As businesses continue to hold off new phone system purchases, global enterprise PBX revenue fell 6 percent in the first quarter of 2015 (1Q15) from a year ago, according to the IHS Infonetics Enterprise Unified Communications and Voice Equipment report from IHS (NYSE: IHS).
“The enterprise PBX market remains challenging, with revenue down yet again in the first quarter of 2015. Pure IP PBX was the one segment to post year-over-year growth due to strength in Asia Pacific,” said Diane Myers, research director for VoIP, UC and IMS at IHS.
“Things have started to slow on the unified communications (UC) front as well, which we attribute to movement to the cloud as businesses look for ease of management and flexibility,” Myers said.
