Cambridge, MASSACHUSETTS> (April 1, 2015)—Technology market research firm Infonetics Research, now part of IHS, Inc. (NYSE: IHS), today reported that global sales of enterprise routers, which provide connectivity between networks and to the internet, are down 3 percent for the full-year 2014, following a 6 percent increase the year prior.
Infonetics’ fourth quarter 2014 (4Q14) and year-end Enterprise Routers market share, size and forecasts report tracks high-end, mid-range, branch office and low-end/SOHO router revenue and ports.
“After a strong 2013, enterprise router sales fell negative in 2014, dragged by a challenging capex environment at service providers in North America and Europe,” said Matthias Machowinski, directing analyst for enterprise networks and video at Infonetics Research, now part of IHS.
“High-end routers continue to do well, driven by new data center deployments and large enterprise headquarters upgrades, but the mid-range and branch office segments both declined due to a focus on cost reduction and shifting preferences to low-end routers,” Machowinski said.
