ALU: Leaders in Gartner's Magic Quadrant

Alcatel-Lucent has been placed in the leaders' quadrant of the recently published Gartner "Magic Quadrant for Corporate Telephony."   The Gartner Magic Quadrant is a graphical representation of a marketplace at and for a specific time period, depicting Gartner's analysis of how certain vendors measure against criteria for that particular marketplace.   The latest Gartner report -- which for the first time, evaluates corporate telephony vendors from a global rather than regional perspective -- recognizes that the market is evolving "from one of proprietary hardware to one of standards-based software" that provides companies the opportunity to "use IP telephony to deliver business benefits across the organization, while consolidating technologies around a common technology or solution provider, or selection of providers and their partners."
