service provider router market share
Worldwide service provider router revenues fell 3 percent to $3.3 billion in Q3 2015, according to Synergy Research Group. On a rolling annual basis the market grew by 1 percent.

Core routers accounted for 21 percent of Q3 revenues, while edge routers accounted for 62 percent and Ethernet access-aggregation devices 17 percent.

North America is the number one region accounting for 36 percent of worldwide service provider router revenues, followed by Asia Pacific, EMEA and Latin America. On a rolling annualized basis EMEA grew 9 percent.

The SP router market leader Cisco Systems’s share of the service provider router market increased 1.4 percentage points in Q3 015 over the previous quarter — thanks to a strong market share gain in the Asia Pacific region and continued growth in EMEA.

Juniper Networks returned to the second position in the worldwide market share table for service provider router, ahead of Alcatel-Lucent and Huawei.

“Relative to the previous quarter Cisco was able to aggressively grow revenues in both the APAC and EMEA regions, countering some weakness in North America,” said John Dinsdale, chief analyst and research director at Synergy Research Group.

Juniper Networks achieved market share gains in the U.S. for the third consecutive quarter, which came mainly at the expense of Cisco Systems.
