Expanding Alcatel-Lucent gains shares across three markets
Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, for three consecutive quarters, has outperformed the competition in the LAN, WLAN and Data Centre switching markets and has continued to gain market share.
Based on year-over-year information from three leading industry analyst firms, the company continues to grow at double-digit pace.
In the Infonetics Research report, Infonetics - Quarterly Worldwide, released earlier this month, the company's managed Ethernet LAN switching revenue outperformed the market for three consecutive quarters with revenue growth of 10.4% compared to 7.0% for the market overall.
“Alcatel-Lucent continues to outperform the market," says Matthias Machowinski, Directing Analyst, Enterprise Networks and Video, Infonetics Research.
"It has gained market share over its competitors on a year over year basis for the past three quarters of 2013”
In the Crehan Quarterly Market Share Research report, also released in December, Alcatel-Lucent outperformed all other vendors with revenue growing 49% year over year in Q3’2013, compared to a market growth of 11%.
As a result of the findings, this is the third quarter in a row that the business was the fastest growing data centre switch vendor.
And as noted in the recently released Dell’Oro WLAN Enterprise Vendor Report last month, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise’s WLAN revenue outperformed the market for the third quarter in a row with an 18.5% year over year increase in Q3’13 compared to only 14.2% for the overall market.
