Cisco Still Rules Ethernet Switch, Enterprise Router Markets

Cisco Systems continues to dominate different router and switch segments, according to reports from market research firm Infonetics Research.

Although Cisco dominates in both 100 megabit and 1/10gigabit categories, it is feeling competitive heat from Hewlett-Packard, NETGEAR, and 3Com, Osipuk said.

Cisco leads the enterprise router market, too. In addition, Cisco's biggest competitor is itself -- its Linksys unit is second to Cisco in revenue and first in unit market share. The enterprise router market is up 8 percent to $1 billion in the first quarter and Osipuk projects its annual revenue will grow 13 percent between 2003 and 2007.
