Yealink presented with major industry award


Business VoIP (voice over internet protocol) handset manufacturer and supplier Yealink has been honoured with a prestigious award from independent global research organisation Frost & Sullivan.

The award – the 2012 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Growth leadership – was presented to Yealink in recognition of its considerable and concerted expansion in the field of international business VoIP phone sales.

Frost & Sullivan said it had identified an 83% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) in Yealink’s shipments of business VoIP handsets between 2009 and 2011 – making the company one of the world’s most successful providers of business VoIP phones.

Commenting on Yealink’s performance, Alaa Saayed, ICT team leader with Frost & Sullivan, said that his organisation had also recognised the extent both of the value for money and of the functional benefits of all Yealink’s internet protocol (IP) telephony products. Saayed said:

“Growing its SIP phone sales year over year, Yealink has achieved this leadership position due to successfully applying a best-bang-for-the-buck strategy, providing the highest ratio of value to cost, leveraging extensive customer international knowledge, and growing its partner relationships. The company’s IP devices have gradually gained the reputation of high-quality endpoints that offer compelling functionality at a compelling price point.”

Frost & Sullivan also commended Yealink for the compatibility of its products, with many global IP telephony platforms, including Asterisk – the specialist software solution deployed by a growing number of business VoIP provider and VoIP reseller firms.

In presenting the award, Frost & Sullivan is understood to have taken into account Yealink’s performance in the production and distribution not only of IP telephony desktop phones, but also of USB business VoIP phones and IP telephony video phones.

Saayed, meanwhile, said he felt that the company was now in a good position to build even further on the considerable gains it had achieved in the international business phone systems market.
