Worldwide Service Provider Router Market Shares, 2Q18: Huawei Ascends to Market Leadership Amid Prolonged North American Market Slump

By: Rajesh GhaiResearch Director, Carrier Network Infrastructure, Petr JirovskyResearch Manager, Enterprise Communications Infrastructure


This IDC study reviews the worldwide service provider router revenue for 2Q18.

"While the lull in North American service provider spending did negatively impact the overall service provider routing market in 2Q18, the continued strength of the core routing market for a second quarter in a row suggests service providers are increasing backbone network capacity ahead of impending next-gen mobile network launches and in support of the continued growth of cloud services, mobile, and OTT video across all end markets," says Rajesh Ghai, research director, Carrier Network Infrastructure, at IDC. "The other key milestone reached this quarter was Huawei's ascension as the clear market leader across all segments of the service provider routing market."
