Shanghai, September 27, 2010 – Based on market tracker and analysis of subscriber data management (SDM) market, Frost & Sullivan, a world leader in growth consulting, recognizes Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. (Huawei) with the Best Practice Award–2010 SDM Equipment Vendor of the Year honoring the company's outstanding efforts toward the development of the SDM equipment market.
In current networks, subscriber data are distributed among different functional components with isolated silos of information. These silos significantly increase cost and complexity of communications service provider (CSP) networks and limit their ability to meet users' demand for more personalized services.
SDM is a key approach to operating expenditure (OPEX) and capital expenditure (CAPEX) reduction, helping CSPs improve their bottom lines by simplifying operations and reducing cost. The value of SDM also lies in its ability to help CSPs significantly improve user experience by providing personalized applications and services.
Among the various vendors of SDM solution offerings, Huawei has gained a strong foothold in this market. In the incremental SDM market, Huawei reached 26.4 percent of the total market share in 2009, hitting 960.0 million SDM subscribers. In the incremental next generation home location register (ngHLR) market, Huawei reached 35.7 percent of the total market share in 2009, hitting 580.0 million ngHLR subscribers.
Huawei's dominance in the SDM market is driven by the superior performance of its SDM solution, offering CSPs the most comprehensive subscriber data management capabilities, including network data convergence, service data convergence, unified policy management, unified identity management, unified signaling routing management, and subscriber information cloud.. In recognition of the outstanding performance of the company in the SDM market, Frost & Sullivan is honored to present Huawei with the Best Practice Award-2010 SDM Equipment Vendor of the Year.
