Ribbon named market share leader for session border controllers

30 Jan 2019

Market research firm IHS Markit has reported Ribbon Communications’ enterprise session border controllers (E-SBC) as the market share leader in that category for the third quarter of 2018. 

E-SBCs are a key component of Ribbon’s Intelligent Edge software solutions, which are leveraged by leading enterprises to effectively manage their transition to next-generation (NextGen) SIP-based unified communications (UC) software in both premises-based and cloud environments.

“Enterprises are increasingly turning to Ribbon’s advanced E-SBC software solutions to help them securely manage and optimise their valued IT and UC assets,” said Ribbon Communications chief technology officer Kevin Riley. 

“To be ranked as a market share leader by IHS Markit is further validation that our strategic acquisition of Edgewater Networks is paying immediate dividends. We are committed to continually delivering value to our customers across all of our product lines and are thrilled to be recognised by one of the authoritative voices in the industry.

“In addition to providing enterprises with advanced security and quality, our EdgeView network management software provides best-in-class network insights that give customers the ability to monitor, troubleshoot and quickly resolve issues from a centralised cloud control centre.”

“Enterprise continues to be a key focus area for Ribbon and our enterprise-related software products are an integral part of our overall offerings, accounting for nearly one-third of our product revenue in the third quarter,” adds Ribbon Communications chief financial officer Daryl Raiford.

“IHS Markit forecasts growth for the enterprise session border controller market to experience a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6%over the next five years, and we believe we are well positioned to capitalise on these opportunities with our comprehensive portfolio.”

 “Enterprise SBCs are gaining acceptance worldwide and the market is steadily growing,” says IHS Markit senior research director Diane Myers. 

“The landscape within the enterprise SBC market remains competitive, but Ribbon has capitalised on its acquisition of Edgewater Networks with an 18% revenue market share in the third quarter of 2018.”

 Ribbon’s broad portfolio of E-SBCs scale from small businesses to the largest multi-national enterprises.  

They are certified for both Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business deployments, and interoperate with legacy, SIP and applications service providers, while delivering ease of use, and providing some of the industry’s most advanced SIP security and reliability.

  • Market research firm IHS Markit has reported Ribbon as the #1 Enterprise Session Border Controller market share leader with an 18% revenue market share in the third quarter of 2018.
  • Ribbon’s E-SBCs are a key component of its Intelligent Edge software solutions and helps enterprises effectively and securely manage their transition to SIP-based unified communications (UC).
