Siemens tops the list of worldwide IPTV network middleware vendors, according to the latest ABI Research Vendor Matrix.
Microsoft and Alcatel claimed the second and third spots in the company's most recent evaluation. ABI Research developed the analytical tool to provide a clear understanding of vendors' positions in specific markets. ABI Research assesses vendors on the parameters of "innovation" and "implementation" across several criteria.
For this particular matrix under "innovation," ABI Research examined breadth of services/functions supported by the company's solution, its interoperability with other solutions, the company's technology partners, and the scalability of the solution.
Under "implementation," ABI Research scrutinized the strength of the company's customer base, brand identification, sales channels, regional/key market diversity and a company’s ability to package its solution in a broader end-to-end offering.
