By Deepika Mala, TMCnet Contributor

Frost & Sullivan (News - Alert) recently honored Cisco, a provider of the broadest and deepest enterprise unified communications and collaboration portfolios in the industry, with the prestigious 2012 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Market Share Leadership.

Cisco (News - Alert) has demonstrated excellence in capturing the highest market share within its industry.  Its overall market grew around 26.9 percent in 2011.

The company built on its 2010 momentum to outpace the market with a 32.9-percent year-over-year revenue growth, increasing global market share from 48.5 percent in 2010 to 50.8 percent in 2011 in terms of total revenue.

Cisco has successfully addressed opportunities across an enterprise's entire network infrastructure. It has also made significant achievements in taking video conferencing and telepresence to the next level through integration with the Unified Communications (News - Alert) Manager platform.

In a statement, Frost & Sullivan, senior industry analyst, Robert Arnold, said, “Among the key factors that contributed to Cisco's success in the global videoconferencing infrastructure market are the ability to prove the value of a true end-to-end collaboration portfolio; its leadership in both the multipoint conferencing, as well as the other videoconferencing infrastructure segments of the market; its ability to successfully expand the role of video in the enterprise; and the continuous evolution of its videoconferencing solutions portfolio.”

Cisco is the only vendor in the market that offers an integrated end-to-end collaboration solution from instant messaging to three-screen immersive telepresence. It also holds a track record of multi-vendor interoperability that empowers its ability to provide end-to-end solutions.

Cisco has made significant investments in evaluating the existing and potential use cases for video conferencing. It has also addressed demands such as BYOD and mobility that are shifting the paradigm of the market.
