The global service provider core router market grew 11 percent year-over-year in the first quarter of 2011, its fifth consecutive quarter of double-digit growth.
The Dell’Oro Group report also discusses the adoption of next generation core routers and how advanced technologies such as 100 Gbps Ethernet will affect core router market growth.
In 1Q11, Cisco Systems maintained its dominant position in the core router market, followed by Juniper Networks and Huawei.
We are on the verge of a major shift in core router technologies and increased market competition,” said Shin Umeda, vice president at Dell’Oro Group.
“All of the major vendors have introduced new high capacity and scalable systems, and we believe that service providers will be evaluating, testing, and eventually buying these products in the near future,” Umeda added.
