REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Aug. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A recent market research report from Dell'Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, indicates that Asia Pacific was the strongest growing market on a sequential basis during the second quarter. The region also reached record revenue share of the overall market.


"Significant sequential growth from Huawei and ZTE helped propel the Ethernet Switch market to another record quarter in revenue as markets such as China continue to expand and vendors native to the region continue to increase their footprint around the world," said Alan Weckel, Senior Director at Dell'Oro Group. "Despite Asia's continued strength, Ethernet Switch market revenues are still dominated by Europe and North America. North American revenue share is likely to remain significantly higher as data center upgrades and Web 2.0 build-outs in the region continue at a more rapid pace and larger scale than the rest of the world," stated Weckel.

The report also shows that 10 Gigabit Ethernet continues to gain traction in all areas of the network.  The largest six 10 Gigabit Ethernet vendors broken out in the report in terms of port shipments are Brocade, Cisco, Dell, HP, IBM, and Juniper.
