Avaya Surpasses Seven Million IP Telephony Line Shipments

Avaya has passed the seven million line milestone for IP telephony shipments. The recipient of the seven millionth line is ING Vysya Bank, one of India's leading private sector banks.

Avaya also noted that its IP line shipments surpassed traditional line shipments this year.

Avaya claims to be the worldwide leader in IP telephony line shipments for first quarter 2005 with a 21% share, maintaining that position for the sixth consecutive quarter, according to figures from Synergy Research Group.

In 2004, IP telephony accounted for 8% of the 423 million total enterprise telephony lines installed worldwide, a figure that is increasing rapidly as companies migrate from traditional telephony systems to gain the benefits of converged voice and data. The overall market for IP lines installed is expected to quadruple by 2007.
