REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – June 7, 2018 – According to a recent report by Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, the Ethernet Switching market recorded double-digit growth driven by both data center as well as campus deployments. Growth in the Campus Switching market was broad-based as the top four vendors, Cisco, H3C, HPE and Huawei, all contributed to the market growth.

“In line with our expectations, we saw a recovery in the Campus Switching market after the softness witnessed during last quarter,” said Sameh Boujelbene, Senior Director at Dell’Oro Group. “Growth was broad-based across all regions and was driven by a refresh cycle led by Cisco’s Catalyst 9k family, demand for WLAN AP aggregation as well as new use cases for wired connectivity,” continued Boujelbene.

The 1Q18 Ethernet Switch – Layer 2+3 Quarterly Report discusses other key-takeaways about the market, including:

  • Ongoing switch refresh cycle despite delays in 802.11ax WLAN Access Points (APs) deployments
  • Strong initial ramp for Cisco Catalyst 9K and Intent-based networking
  • Increased traction for Cisco in China
  • Improved performance for HPE in North America and Europe
