Next Leadership Scorecard: The Top Six Telecom Vendors-2 Next

"The six vendors profiled in our telecom scorecard together earn more than half of the world's telecom equipment and service revenue and share a common thread: they offer products and services across the entire telecom spectrum," notes Michael Howard, co-founder and principal analyst for carrier networks at Infonetics Research.

"The race for top ranking was tight this year," continues Howard. "The top three vendors — Huawei, Ericsson and Cisco — are bunched closely together due to different strengths, but it's financial stability that sets them apart from the other three vendors-Alcatel-Lucent, NSN and ZTE."

Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its 2013 Telecommunications Equipment Vendor Leadership Scorecard, which profiles, analyzes and ranks the six leading suppliers of telecom infrastructure, software and services: Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco, Ericsson, Huawei, NSN and ZTE.

Infonetics' telecom scorecard evaluates vendors on criteria using actual data and metrics, including direct feedback from buyers, vendor market share, share momentum, financials and solution portfolio. This approach eliminates subjectivity and ensures vendors are assessed accurately and fairly.
