Incline Village, Nevada – February 7, 2024 – A newly released report by 650 Group, a leading Market Intelligence Research firm for communications, campus networking, and cloud markets, indicates that the Enterprise/Campus Ethernet Switch Market will contract in 2024 as customers digest extra equipment that was purchased during extended lead times. The report also revealed significant regional differences in vendor performance with many records set.

Highlights for the quarter include:

  • Vendors shift to multi-gigabit technology drove up ASPs and is a crucial driver to future revenue performance in the market in 2024
  • Campus switching continues to change from user connectivity to infrastructure with OT/IT convergence
  • Vendors begin to rely on service renewal and subscription contracts as backlog diminishes
  • Significant change in vendor market shares in Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa
  • HPE announces its plans to acquire Juniper Networks

“The Campus/Enterprise Ethernet Switch market hit record levels in 2023 in the enterprise segment as most vendors shipped their backlog,” said Alan Weckel, Founder and Technology Analyst at 650 Group. “As a result, 2024 will be a year of digestion as customers work to deploy that equipment and the market returns to normal lead times.”

The 650 Group Quarterly Campus/Enterprise Ethernet Switch report indicates that HPE Aruba, Juniper, Ubiquiti, Arista, Extreme Networks, and Ruckus were the top six campus switch vendors after Cisco in North America. Subscription, Cloud, and NaaS results were also robust in the quarter.
