"With the recovering economic environment some vendors fared better than others navigating through increased competition and conservative customer spending," said Jeremy Duke, Principal Analyst and Founder, Synergy Research Group. "The effects of strong country growth, where vendors had a strong presence, was a significant contributor to vendor performance in the quarter."
Western European vendors that were negatively impacted by this trend included Aastra, Alcatel-Lucent, and Siemens showing year over year decreases. In contrast, both Cisco and Avaya, gained share and drove strong revenue growth in Q1 2010.
