Based on its recent analysis of the enterprise communications platforms and endpoints market, Frost & Sullivan (News - Alert) has awarded Yealink with the 2012 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Growth Leadership, which recognizes the highest compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for the past three years.

Among the top five SIP phone brands in the industry and the most popular Chinese brand in the Western world, Yealink offers three product lines: IP video phones, IP phones and USB phones. These devices not only match the top international requirements in terms of quality and features, but are also very competitively priced.

The company also providers unified communications, IP contact center and small and medium-sized business solutions, helping customers to improve their ability to communicate and collaborate with employees, partners and customers in the most effective way.
Yealink continuously strives to transfer its growing expertise as a leading endpoint vendor to its various partners and contacts across different regions. Furthermore, it has a strong focus on interoperability with different communication platform vendors. The company already has certifications issued by more than 80 international VoIP systems vendors, such as Asterisk, Avaya, BroadSoft and Genesys (News - Alert), and sells its precuts in more than 140 countries.
Other unique regional characteristics that the company seeks to address in product development and marketing strategies include telecommunication regulatory policies, security and safety requirements and compatibility with existing infrastructure.
