Frost & Sullivan noted Tandberg's continued top-line growth and market leadership. Through the first nine months of 2007 (January to September), Tandberg revenues reached $437.6 million, growing 51 percent year-over-year.

"Tandberg has seen impressive top line growth in recent years, reflecting its market leading innovation and strong sales execution."

According to Frost & Sullivan, Tandberg has further strengthened its position in the market by broadening its portfolio at both the high end and low end. Tandberg's high-end telepresence solution, Experia, provides a highly collaborative, in-person meeting experience that allows organizations to use their own networks and existing meeting rooms to create a telepresence experience. Movi provides a server-based PC-video application for enterprises that increases the accessibility and availability of video communications for PC users.

Tandberg has also been proactive in green business initiatives by raising awareness for the advantages of using tools and technologies that promote productivity while reducing carbon emissions, traffic congestion and unnecessary business travel.

"Organizations are investing in innovative technologies, such as Tandberg telepresence and high-definition videoconferencing, to enable natural communication. By providing an in-person meeting experience, Tandberg solutions enhance collaboration and productivity," said Fredrik Halvorsen, Tandberg CEO. "Together with our partners we have been able to expand the market and deliver a superior customer experience. We are honored that Frost & Sullivan has recognized our leadership in this exciting industry."
