Infonetics Research: Solid Year Behind, Better Year Ahead for Ethernet Switch Market



  Infonetics Research: Solid Year Behind, Better Year Ahead for Ethernet
  Switch Market

Business Wire

BOSTON -- March 4, 2013

Market research firm Infonetics Research released vendor market share and
preliminary analysis from its 4th quarter 2012 (4Q12) and year-end Ethernet
Switches  report. (Full report published Mar. 7.)

ANALYST NOTE

“Given the finicky economic backdrop, weakness in Europe, and lower spending
by public sector customers, Ethernet switches turned in a solid performance in
2012, returning to modest growth,” notes Matthias Machowinski, directing
analyst for enterprise networks and video at Infonetics Research. “And signs
are pointing to a healthier road ahead as discounting returns to normal levels
and buyers seek higher-value products like layer 3 switches and higher-speed
ports.”

ETHERNET SWITCH MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  * The global Ethernet switch market totaled $5.1 billion in 4Q12, up 5%
    sequentially, and $19.8 billion in 2012, up almost $1 billion over 2011
    (+4.7%)
  * All top 5 Ethernet switch revenue leaders — Cisco, HP, Juniper, Dell,
    Brocade — increased revenue in 2012 over 2011, though smaller vendors
    managed to gain market share
  * Together, Cisco and HP capture over ¾ of the global Ethernet switch market
  * 10G is accounting for almost all Ethernet switch revenue growth: 10G port
    shipments grew 66% in 2012, driven by data center upgrades, 10G server
    adoption, server virtualization, and core network buildouts
  * 40G Ethernet is growing rapidly, with port volumes up 10-fold in 2012,
    from a small base
