The report also revealed significant regional differences in vendor performance with many records set.

  • Combined vendor shift to multi-gigabit platforms drove up ASPs and is a crucial driver to future revenue performance in the market in 2H’23 and for 2024
  • Nearly 2,000 switches shipped every hour in 2Q23 into the enterprise, achieving a new record
  • Vendors continue to burn off backlog at different rates
