Alcatel-Lucent Ranked No.1 Enterprise and Consumer Femtocell End-to-end System Vendor; Ubiquisys Takes Top Position as Access Point Vendor, According to ABI Research
LONDON --(Business Wire)--
Alcatel-Lucent (News - Alert) has been ranked the number one end-to-end system vendor
in the latest enterprise and consumer femtocell Competitive Assessment
released by ABI Research. NEC and NSN claim second and third spots
respectively as end-to-end system vendors.
Ubiquisys (News - Alert) is the leading access point vendor, while Alcatel-Lucent and
ip.access are placed second and third respectively as access point
The Competitive Assessment separates out access point vendors and
end-to-end system vendors, with some vendors considered in both
categories. In each category, the vendors are ranked on Innovation and
Implementation, with access point vendors mainly ranked on access point
hardware and software capabilities, while end-to-end system vendors are
ranked on their ability to successfully bring together all elements on
the femtocell solution from the access point through to the core gateway
and system integration.
Aditya Kaul, practice director comments, "As the enterprise and consumer
femtocell market matures, we are seeing more of a focus on end-to-end
system capabilities, as vendors fill in gaps within their own
portfolios, whether on the access point or core gateway. However, we
also see vendors that are happy in their own skin as access point
specialists or system integrators, who have been successful targeting
the right strategic partnerships."
Kaul adds, "The Competitive Assessment clearly brings out this dynamic
with vendors like Ubiquisys and NEC (News - Alert) being successful on the back of
their own specializations as access point and system supplier's, while
on the other hand vendors like ip.access, Cisco (News - Alert), and NSN would like to
be seen as true end-to-end vendors as they build on their capabilities
as gateway vendors in the case of ip.access and access points in the
case of Cisco and NSN."
