REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – March 5, 2014 –According to a newly published report by Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, the Service Provider Router market posted a five percent increase for the full-year 2013 after contracting in the prior year.  Sales of Service Provider Routers, the devices used to move data across the Internet, rebounded to a record level of $9.7 billion and are expected to accelerate in 2014.

“In many ways, 2013 was a transitional year.  From a regional perspective, the majority of market growth came from Europe and Asia, while demand in North America flattened,” said Alam Tamboli, Business Analyst at Dell’Oro Group and author of the report.  “We also saw new technologies such as 100 Gigabit Ethernet start to ramp, which is a strong indicator of an impending product upgrade cycle that will accelerate market growth this year,” added Tamboli.

Service Provider Router Market 2013—Top Four Vendors Accounted for 94 Percent Share

  • #2 Juniper: Recorded double-digit revenue growth stemming from exceptionally strong demand in North America.
  • #3 Alcatel-Lucent: Maintained share as strong growth in Europe and Asia offset a decline in North America.
  • #4 Huawei: Gained the most share of all vendors due to strong sales in the China market.
