Based on its recent analysis of the enterprise premises-based fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) solutions market for independent vendors, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Comdasys with the 2011 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Market Leadership for its continuing success in the advanced premises-based FMC solutions market and its leadership position in terms of total advanced premises-based FMC clients shipped among the independent FMC vendors. This category comprises independent FMC firms such as Agito Networks, Counterpath, DiVitas, Tango Networks, and Varaha Systems.
"Comdasys accounted for 38.2 percent of total clients shipped in this category and has seen client deployments increase during the past two years to well over 650 percent," says Frost & Sullivan research analyst Alaa Saayed. "Frost & Sullivan firmly believes that Comdasys has achieved this leadership position due to a robust enterprise FMC/Mobile UC solution, strong partner relationships, multi-platform/multi-device support and the availability of multiple deployment options."
Comdasys' FMC/Mobile UC solution consists of two main components: the Mobile Convergence (MC) Controller and the MC Client. Provisioned to a wide range of mobile devices, the Comdasys MC client delivers a broad set of features and capabilities desired by the mobility market today, including traditional IP PBX integration features, advanced mobile UC capabilities, network roaming capabilities and different cost-optimization options.
Significantly, Comdasys has achieved a comprehensive PBX interoperability list that includes Aastra, Alcatel-Lucent, Avaya, BroadSoft, Cisco, Mitel, NEC-Unified, Seltatel, ShoreTel, Siemens, Teles and various open-source PBXs.
"Although the Comdasys solution is also sold through a number of resellers, the company mainly sells through OEM partners - both Tier 1 and Tier 2 communications manufacturers as well as an increasing number of service providers," notes Saayed. "While these types of arrangements have kept Comdasys under the radar, the company has managed to explosively grow its client deployments."
Moreover, Comdasys is very competitively positioned by supporting the latest mobile operating systems and smartphone models in the market. It supports all major mobile platforms including Android, BlackBerry, Symbian, iPhone, iPad and various other tablets in both Wi-Fi and cellular networks. In fact, Comdasys was one of the first FMC vendors to support the Android mobile operating systems, which is quickly gaining acceptance in the enterprise space.
Comdasys backs up its solid product offerings with multiple deployment options. The Comdasys MC Solution scales from a few users up to tens of thousands of users. This is achieved by deploying either the standard MC Controller appliances or virtualized MC Controller supporting VMware/HyperV systems. The MC Enterprise Server can also be deployed as a software installed on high-end servers such as Blade Servers or available in VMWare for integration in general servers and VMWare environments. In such scenarios, the Comdasys solution could scale up to 25,000 registered users per blade server.
Overall Comdasys' robust enterprise FMC/Mobile UC solution, strong partner relationships, multi-platform/multi-device support and the availability of multiple deployment options have created a leading and competitive name for enterprise FMC solutions. In recognition of its continuous focus on the enterprise FMC market and its leadership in terms of advanced enterprise premises-based FMC clients shipped in 2010 among independent FMC vendors, Frost & Sullivan is proud to present the company with the 2011 Global Frost & Sullivan Market Leadership Award for the enterprise premises-based FMC solutions markets.
