Campbell, CALIFORNIA (July 14, 2015)—IHS (NYSE: IHS) today released excerpts from its 2015 IHS Infonetics IMS Vendor Scorecard, which profiles and analyzes the 6 top revenue producers of core IP Multimedia Subsystem network solutions: Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, Huawei, Mavenir, Nokia Networks and ZTE.
The only report of its kind, IHS’ IMS scorecard evaluates the leading IMS vendors on criteria using actual data and metrics, includingmarket presence (market share, financials, solution breadth and buyer feedback on product reliability and service/support) and market momentum (market share momentum, NFV intensity, buyer feedback on vendors’ technology innovation). The report includes a Leadership Landscape Graph that classifies vendors as “Leader,” “Established” or “Challenger” based on their scores in these criteria. This approach eliminates subjectivity and ensures vendors are assessed accurately and fairly.
“The core IMS market is highly competitive among the market share leaders. But beyond market share, what sets the vendors apart are financial health and customer perceptions. Our scorecard ‘Leaders’—Ericsson, Huawei and Nokia Networks—rise above the pack thanks to strong financials. This does not take away from advantages the other vendors have, but it does put some distance between the Leaders and the other players,” said Diane Myers, research director for VoIP, UC and IMS at IHS.
