Wednesday 31 August 2016 | 20:56 CET | News

Cisco took the lion’s share of the total worldwide switching and router market in the second quarter with 53 percent, followed by Huawei, Juniper, HPE and Nokia with market shares at 5-9 percent each, according to a study from Synergy Research Group for the second quarter. Other vendors came next but none with a share larger than 2 percent.

For individual segments, Cisco’s share ranged from 68 percent for enterprise routers to 40 percent for service provider routers. Worldwide switching and router revenues went over USD 10 billion in the quarter, representing 1 percent growth on a rolling annualised basis.

Enterprise Ethernet switching accounted for almost 60 percent of the total, and showed the strongest growth among the three segments (Enterprise Ethernet switching, Enterprise routers, service provider routers).

North America remained the biggest region, contributing over 40 percent of worldwide revenues, followed by EMEA, APAC and Latin America. The APAC region has been the fastest growing and this was again the case in Q2, with growth driven in large part by service provider spending in China, which benefitted Huawei in particular.
