CAMPBELL, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Market research firm Infonetics
Research released excerpts from its 2013 Telecommunications
Equipment Vendor Leadership Scorecard, which profiles, analyzes
and ranks the 6 leading suppliers of telecom infrastructure, software
and services: Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco, Ericsson, Huawei (News - Alert), NSN and ZTE.
The only report of its kind, 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.

"The 6 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
"The race for top ranking was tight this year," continues Howard.
"The top 3 vendors-Huawei, Ericsson and Cisco (News - Alert)-are bunched
closely together due to different strengths, but it's financial
stability that sets them apart from the other 3 vendors-Alcatel-Lucent,
NSN and ZTE."
TELECOM VENDOR SCORECARD HIGHLIGHTS
With a solid performance in market share, market share momentum and
solution breadth, Huawei received the highest overall
score for telecom vendor equipment and services
Ericsson (News - Alert), the world's largest provider of telecom equipment and
services, took the #2-spot, finishing a whisker behind Huawei;
Ericsson nabbed above-average scores overall and, thanks to its RAN
offering, is in a good position to grow as the world continues to go
Cisco, #1 in Infonetics' companion enterprise
scorecard, comes in 3rd in the telecom infrastructure scorecard,
earning high marks for financial stability and technology
The other vendors analyzed in the report-Alcatel-Lucent (News - Alert), NSN

each has corrective measures in place for 2013:
Through its SHIFT plan, AlcaLu is prioritizing its product
portfolio and investing in fewer segments going forward
Nokia (News - Alert) has announced the buyback of Nokia Siemens Networks from
