REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – August 25, 2015According to a recent report by Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, the Layer 2-3 Ethernet Switch market grew 7 percent sequentially and 4 percent Y/Y in the second quarter 2015 to $5.9 billion.
“2Q15 grew strongly with China and campus switching showing robust growth in the quarter,” said Alan Weckel, Vice President of Ethernet Switch market research at Dell’Oro Group. “Contrary to perceived economic and political headwinds in Europe and China, the Ethernet Switch market remains robust with upgrade cycles occurring in the campus and data center markets in all regions of the world. With 2.5/5.0 GE shipping for the first time in the quarter and 25/50 GE expected to ship by December, we expect there to be record revenue in 2015 and 2016 as new products ramp over the next several quarters” stated Weckel.
The report also indicates that Cisco, HP, and Huawei remained the top three vendors in China combining for $500 million during the second quarter 2015. While the revenue share of these large U.S.-based vendors has declined versus the year-ago quarter, overall market sales in China were up.
