Thursday 12 March 2020 | 11:32 CET | News
The global Ethernet switch market (Layer 2/3) and the router market fell 2.1 percent and 7.7 percent year-on-year in the fourth quarter to USD 7.6 billion and USD 4.2 billion respectively, according to the latest study from IDC. Revenues were hit by a variety of factors, including the ongoing trade war between the US and China and the uncertainty at the time around Brexit. The outbreak of covid-19 (coronavirus) did not impact results, but it will help softness continue in the early part of this year.
