NEC did not share the market share of Cisco and Avaya.

The growth driver was NEC’s continued strength in Asia Pacific, as well as strong share growth in North America helped it to maintain global market share and take top position.

Will Parsons of MZA said that NEC performed well in its home region and improved its volume growth in North America, Latin America and Western Europe.
