Juniper Networks has overtaken HP to become the #2 enterprise router vendor in the second quarter of 2013, Infonetics Research said.
Juniper’s sales rose more than 40 percent sequentially due to a government project.
Cisco continues to lead the enterprise router market in Q2.
Infonetics Research said the global enterprise router market rose 6 percent to $945 million in Q2. The quarter-on-quarter growth was 12 percent.
“For the first time in a year, revenue grew on a year-over-year basis in the second quarter of 2013 as the public sector vertical returned back to life,” said Matthias Machowinski, directing analyst for enterprise networks and video at Infonetics Research.
Businesses’ move to low-end routers is slowing: the low-end router and branch office router segments are now growing equally on a year-over-year basis.
Enterprise router sales increased 14 percent quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year in North America in the second quarter.
Infonetics doesn’t expect EMEA (Europe, the Middle East, Africa) to be a strong growth market this year, but Q2 2013 points to a bottom for enterprise router sales in the region.
