Worldwide Service Provider Router Market Shares, 4Q16: Core and Asia/Pacific Offset a Weak Edge

Worldwide Service Provider Router Market Shares, 4Q16: Core and Asia/Pacific Offset a Weak Edge

This IDC study reviews the worldwide service provider router revenue for 2016."The insatiable demand for network bandwidth as consumer and enterprise demand for data continues to rise unabated has driven a strong demand for the core routing segment over the past two years. On the other hand, the strategic imperative for greater service agility and network flexibility in a dynamic demand environment is also pushing carriers to transform their network edge. This transformation continues to keep the edge segment sluggish across the globe compared with the core. 2016 saw Huawei surge to over 20% share for the first time in the router market, riding its dominance in the red-hot Asia/Pacific market, which was up nearly 20% YoY. In continuation of these trends, we expect Huawei to further consolidate its position and emerge as the second largest global router vendor in 2017." — Rajesh Ghai, research director, Carrier Network Infrastructure.
