Cisco and H3C Growth More than Offset Softness in HPE and Huawei

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – September 18, 2019 – According to a recent report by Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, Campus Switch Market recorded robust results in 2Q 2019 despite weakness in China. Cisco and H3C growth more than offset softness in HPE and Huawei.

“Overall campus switching sales were robust in 2Q 2019, with most of the growth driven by North America and Europe, while sales in China declined,” said Sameh Boujelbene, Senior Director at Dell’Oro Group. “Although growth in China has been decelerating over the past few quarters, the report indicated this was the first quarter of revenue decline in about three years. All this decline was driven by Huawei due to project delays, while H3C, Sundray and Ruijie continued to grow during the quarter. While it is difficult to assess whether Huawei’s project delays were caused by macro-economic uncertainties or U.S. government’s actions towards the company, we have yet to see much competitive displacement of Huawei so far,” added Boujelbene.

Following are additional highlights from the 2Q 2019 Ethernet Switch – Campus Quarterly Report:

  • Cisco drove most of the Y/Y growth and gained 3 points of worldwide revenue share.
  • HPE revenue declined Y/Y for the second consecutive quarter.
  • 2.5/5.0 Gbps port shipments more than doubled Y/Y.
