United States : Cisco Sitting Pretty in High-Flying SBC Segment.

Thanks to its push into Unified Communications (UC), Cisco Systems Inc. is a strong player in the still-gestating session border controller (SBC) market segment. SBC uptake increased by 53 percent last year -- at a time when sales in other technology segments were tanking -- and experts project similarly robust growth through 2014. The upshot, according to market watcher Infonetics Research, is that enterprises are switching en masses from PBX to SBC.

"The enterprise session border controller market grew more than 50 percent in 2009 over 2008, in stark contrast to the 22 percent decline in the PBX market," said Matthias Machowinski, directing analyst for enterprise voice and data at Infonetics Research, in a prepared release.

Machowinski and Infonetics cite a trio of reasons why SBC sales bucked an otherwise downward trend in the IT spending-scape.
