North America Ethernet Switch Market Jumps
CAMPBELL, Calif. -- Market research firm Infonetics Research released vendor market share and analysis from its 2nd quarter (2Q13) Ethernet Switches report.
“In the second quarter of 2013, global Ethernet switch sales grew from a seasonally slow first quarter, but not enough to drive year-over-year growth,” reports Matthias Machowinski, directing analyst for enterprise networks and video at Infonetics Research.
“North America, the largest region for Ethernet switches, was the bright spot, with revenue jumping 15% sequentially,” continues Machowinski. “However, weak economic conditions persist in EMEA and demand is slowing in China and Japan, tempering overall growth.”
