SUNNYVALE, CA, April 19, 2001 - Shoreline Communications, the leading provider of enterprise-class IP voice communication systems, today announced that it has shipped more than 50,000 IP voice ports, 35,920 of which were shipped in 2000.
"The word is finally getting out that IP voice vendors are shipping real solutions to real customers," said John Fazio, Shoreline president and CEO. "Enterprises are starting to realize the substantial cost savings and unprecedented flexibility that Shoreline delivers out of the box. Five years from now our customers will wonder why they ever paid those excessive site-based support costs typically required by a legacy PBX."
"Shoreline ranks third in systems shipped in the over 100- user market for phone systems that are using IP technology as the protocol of choice for their network architecture" per The Yankee Group's senior analyst Joseph Gagan.
Shoreline's recent gains in market share were also cited by Phillips Infotech as a proof point of an enterprise backlash against traditional voice and data network suppliers. For more information about The Phillips Group Infotech study, call 973-884-0100 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
