EMEA Enterprise Network Equipment Forecast Update, 2018-2022
This IDC Market Forecast presents IDC's EMEA enterprise networking market forecast for 2018– 2022, covering ethernet switching, WLAN, and router technologies. It provides quantitative projections for market value and unit shipments in EMEA in tabular form, as well as certain subregional and technological details related to these projections. Furthermore, it offers IDC's view of the key technology trends expected to shape the future of the enterprise networking market while providing recommendations for vendor strategies.
"To reap the rewards of digital transformation, enterprises need digital-native networks. Vendors are responding to this by developing virtualized solutions such as SD-WAN, vCPE, and SDN as well as moving toward increasingly automated networks. However, this disaggregation of software and hardware threatens current business models. Successful network vendors will not only embrace the vision of a digital-native network, but also differentiate themselves by developing new sales and consumption models based on an ecosystem of leading-edge technology partners to simplify customers' digital transformation journeys," said Roz Parkinson, research manager, IDC EMEA.
