“Healthy” Cisco leads Ethernet market as Juniper weakens

"The Ethernet switch market continues to be a story of the ascendance of greater speeds and feeds, namely 10Gb and 40Gb Ethernet."

The router market also saw varied performance on a regional basis. Latin America, Asia/Pacific, including Japan (APJ), and EMEA all saw year-over-year growth, with increases of 13.9 percent, 6.8 percent, and 6.1 percent, respectively yet the story was very different in North America as the router market declined -5.0 percent year over year in 4Q14.

Vendors

Cisco had a healthy quarter in Ethernet switching with 3.8 percent year-over-year growth in 4Q14, although its market share declined to 61.1 percent from 62.9 percent in the previous quarter - Cisco also stood at 61.1 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013.

In the hotly contested 10GbE segment, Cisco held 59.3 percent of the market in 3Q14, down from 63.7 percent in the previous quarter, and from the 63.9 percent it held in 3Q13 while the vendor’s service provider and enterprise router revenue declined -3.3 percent year-over-year.

HP's Ethernet switch revenue increased more strongly than the rate of the overall market at 6.3 percent year over year and 5.0 percent quarter over quarter in 4Q14.

Consequently, HP's market share in switching now stands at 9.5 percent, up slightly from 9.3 percent in 3Q14 and also from the 9.2 percent share seen in 4Q13.

Juniper experienced a weaker quarter in Ethernet switching with a year-over-year decline of -8.3 percent in 4Q14, while rising 11.6 percent sequentially - its router revenue declined year over year for the second consecutive quarter, falling by -16.3 percent.

"The Ethernet switch market continues to be a story of the ascendance of greater speeds and feeds, namely 10Gb and 40Gb Ethernet," adds Petr Jirovský, Research Manager, IDC Networking Trackers Group.

"However, differences in deployment needs across different segments and geographies keep all speeds relevant to the overall market."
