Dell'Oro: Cisco Losing Routing Market Share

The worldwide demand for service provider routers declined in the fourth quarter of 2008, the second consecutive quarter of contraction, according to a newly published report by Dell'Oro Group. The report highlights the performance of the major manufacturers of service provider routers, the critical technology used in the Internet infrastructure.

"Cisco's router sales have contracted faster than most of the other competitors, and their market share has taken a hit," said Shin Umeda, Vice President at Dell'Oro Group. "Alcatel-Lucent, Juniper, Huawei, and Redback all gained ground on the leader over the past two quarters, but that trend may change as we get further into the year. The global recession is likely to affect all vendors this year, some more than others," added Umeda.
