Dell'Oro: Upgrades Expected for Service Provider Core Routers

The worldwide Service Provider Core Router market grew 11% year-over-year in the first quarter of 2011, its fifth consecutive quarter of double-digit growth, according to a new report from Dell'Oro Group. In 1Q11, Cisco Systems maintained its dominant position in the core router market, followed by Juniper Networks and Huawei.

"We are on the verge of a major shift in core router technologies and increased market competition," said Shin Umeda, Vice President at Dell'Oro Group. "All of the major vendors have introduced new high capacity and scalable systems, and we believe that service providers will be evaluating, testing, and eventually buying these products in the near future," added Umeda.
