TANDBERG Awarded 2008 Frost & Sullivan Global Market Leadership Award


Company Recognized for Leading Sales Growth in Video Conferencing Endpoints and Infrastructure Systems Market

NEW YORK AND OSLO, NORWAY, July 2008 - TANDBERG® (OSLO: TAA. OL), a leading global provider of telepresence, high-definition video conferencing and mobile video, has been awarded the 2008 Frost & Sullivan Market Leadership Award for achieving leadership positions in both the global video conferencing endpoints market and the global video conferencing infrastructure systems market in 2007.

The award was given to TANDBERG in recognition of its market share in the telepresence and video conferencing industry. In 2007, TANDBERG revenues reached $630.5 million, growing almost 51 percent year-over-year. TANDBERG also increased its market share standing to become the number one provider of video conferencing endpoints and infrastructure products.

“TANDBERG has seen impressive top line growth in recent years due to the strength of its technology and sales execution,” said Krithi Rao, Industry Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “TANDBERG’s customers are investing in TANDBERG technology due to its high-quality, ease-of-use and innovative features.”

According to Frost & Sullivan, TANDBERG has further strengthened its position in the market through its strategy of selling end-to-end solutions including endpoints, video bridges, and supporting infrastructure. The supporting infrastructure products, including TANDBERG Management Suite (TMS) and Video Communication Server (VCS), are also providing a path into other video conferencing vendors’ deployments.

Frost & Sullivan also noted that TANDBERG is improving interoperability with key vendors in the market to provide greater value for customers with multi-vendor environments. For example, TANDBERG expanded its existing partnership with Microsoft, delivering business-quality video interoperability with Microsoft Unified Communications Platform (Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007).

“With the increasing demand for video, the need for scalable infrastructure and open systems that fully interoperate with other communications technology is essential,” said Fredrik Halvorsen, TANDBERG CEO. “Our commitment to deliver quality video communications solutions which enhance an organization’s unified communications strategy has been a key driver of our growth.”

The Frost & Sullivan Award for Market Leadership is given to the company that has exhibited market share leadership through the implementation of market strategy. The recipient has displayed excellence in all areas of the market leadership process, including the identification of market challenges, drivers and restraints, as well as strategy development and methods of addressing these market dynamics.
