Ethernet switch market nearly flat in 2Q15; router market strengthens

August 31st, 2015 by Amrinder No comments »

The worldwide Ethernet switch market (Layer 2/3) produced revenues of $5.8 billion in the second quarter of 2015 (2Q15), an increase of 1.0% year over year and an increase of 7.6% quarter over quarter. Meanwhile, the worldwide total enterprise and service provider router market continued to rebound from recent year-over-year declines, growing revenues 11.5% year over year in 2Q15 and also growing 11.5% sequentially. These growth rates are according to preliminary results published in the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Ethernet Switch Tracker and Worldwide Quarterly Router Tracker.

From a geographic perspective, the 2Q15 Ethernet switch market performed best in North America, which grew 5.1% year over year and 13.7% quarter over quarter. Asia/Pacific including Japan (APJ) saw a small decline of -2.4% year over year despite a 12.3% sequential increase. Latin America, normally a strong growth market, declined -2.9% year over year and -5.1% quarter over quarter. The Europe, Middle East & Africa region (EMEA) was also relatively weak in 2Q15, declining -2.4% year over year and -3.2% quarter over quarter.

“Overall revenue and port shipment growth was weaker than expected in 2Q15. Even the relatively strong 10Gb segment saw weaker results than expected,” said Rohit Mehra, Vice President, Network Infrastructure, at IDC. “Given the increasing workloads traversing networks across the enterprise, datacenter, and with service providers, this weakness is likely the result of anticipation for and delayed decision-making around newer and emerging speeds, the intensifying competitive landscape, and of course, continued macroeconomic concerns.”

10Gb Ethernet switch (Layer 2/3) revenue decreased -3.9% year over year, coming in at just under $2.1 billion while 10Gb Ethernet switch port shipments grew a robust 16.4% year over year with nearly 7.3 million ports shipped in 2Q15, as average selling prices continued to fall. 40Gb Ethernet revenue came in at over $500 million for the third consecutive quarter in 2Q15, growing 59.7% year over year. 10Gb and 40Gb Ethernet are expected to continue to be the primary drivers of the overall Ethernet switch market in the near-term. 1Gb Ethernet switch revenue declined slightly (-1.5% year-over-year) as this segment continues to face price erosion.

The worldwide enterprise and service provider router market increased 11.5% year over year in 2Q15. Contrary to the previous quarter, both the enterprise and service provider segments saw strong growth. The enterprise segment increased 8.3% year over year and 7.7% quarter over quarter in 2Q15. The service provider segment performed especially well, growing 12.5% year over year and 12.7% quarter over quarter. This will be a market to watch closely over the coming quarters as software-defined architectures start to take hold across the WAN, enabling network managers and service providers alike to benefit from these emerging capabilities.

The combined enterprise and service provider router market also saw strong performances across the regions. Latin America led all regions with a 26.7% year-over-year growth rate and 25.1% sequential growth rate. APJ also saw a positive quarter, growing 8.9% on an annual basis in 2Q15. North America increased 11.3% year over year. EMEA saw routers as a bright spot in an overall dampened enterprise networking market with a year-over-year growth rate of 10.4%.

Vendor Highlights

Cisco finished the quarter with 1.9% year-over-year growth in the Ethernet switching market and market share of 59.9%, up slightly from its 59.4% share in 2Q14. In the hotly contested 10GbE segment, Cisco held 57.5% of the market in 2Q15, down from 61.1% in the previous quarter, and from the 60.9% it held in 2Q14. Cisco’s service provider and enterprise router revenue increased 14.9% year-over-year.

HP’s Ethernet switch revenue decreased -2.6% year over year, but grew 22.9% quarter over quarter in 2Q15. HP’s market share in switching rose to 9.5% from 8.3% in the first quarter of 2015, but was down from the 9.9% share it held in 2Q14.

Juniper rebounded from a down first quarter in Ethernet switching with a year-over-year increase of 6.9% and sequential growth of 15.5% in 2Q15. Its router revenue declined year-over-year for the fourth consecutive quarter, falling by -4.5% on a year-over-year basis, despite increasing 18.8% sequentially.

“Falling switch port prices have a flattening effect on overall market growth, even as demand for switches, especially 10Gb and 40Gb Ethernet switch ports, increases,” said Petr Jirovsky, Research Manager in IDC’s Networking Trackers Group. “As newer standards at higher speeds such as 25Gb, 50Gb, and 100Gb Ethernet grow to critical mass over the next few years, one can expect this segment to stay dynamic and interesting for the foreseeable future.”

In addition, healthbank is a citizen-owned Swiss cooperative, in which users can, but are not obligated to, become members and have voting rights.


Web-Based Software for Making Fact-Based Sustainability Decisions

August 31st, 2015 by Amrinder No comments »

PRé Sustainability launches SimaPro Share & Collect, a web-based platform developed to facilitate fact-based sustainable decision-making in an efficient, time-saving manner. Life cycle assessment (LCA) is the principal quantitative, science-based approach for determining the environmental impacts of products and services and for establishing concrete, actionable sustainability metrics. With Share & Collect, LCA results can be made accessible to a broader business audience and can easily be converted into valuable business insights. This enables business departments to build a scientific basis for a robust sustainability strategy. Share & Collect is an add-on to the world’s leading LCA software, SimaPro.

With Share & Collect, Life Cycle Assessment comes into its own

“Sustainability needs to be based on facts, not intuitions,” says Mark Goedkoop, Founder and CEO of PRé Sustainability. “Although LCA is one of the most robust, fact-based assessment methods in sustainability, it generates a lot of complex data. Transforming LCA results into business insights is a key challenge for every LCA expert.”

Interpreting LCA results requires expertise, and even answering simple ‘what if’ questions can take a lot of back-and-forth reporting and waiting. In addition, LCA can seem like a black-box process. “We need to build a bridge,” says Goedkoop “To make LCA benefits available to everybody, without losing the robustness, transparency and scientific rigour we have been bringing to LCA for the past 25 years. SimaPro Share & Collect can be that bridge.”

With SimaPro Share, LCA results become accessible and actionable. Scenarios shared through an intuitive web interface quickly show stakeholders the impact of their decisions in an interactive manner. “Interactivity is crucial,” says Eric Mieras, Managing Director of PRé Sustainability, “because it allows users with any background to experience working with LCA results and converting them into business insights. They are actively generating information, not just reading a report.”. The effects can spread throughout the company, allowing business departments to increase efficiency for:

Sustainable product development and modification

Environmental product declarations (EPDs)

Sustainability goal setting and benchmarking

Streamlined LCA studies

SimaPro Collect is an efficient, reliable tool to collect data from suppliers and stakeholders, which can stimulate supply chain engagement and collaboration.

Worldwide research and collaboration

SimaPro Share & Collect was developed by PRé Sustainability, a sustainability software and consultancy firm with 25 years’ experience as leading voice in life cycle management, life cycle assessment and sustainability metrics development. It is the result of insights gained from close collaboration with clients and partners. Through the large worldwide partner network of PRé Sustainability, roundtable discussions were held to determine the sustainability needs of businesses and LCA departments.

Important facts

Release presentation and live demos

The official launch of Share & Collect takes place on 31 August 2015 at the Life Cycle Management 2015 conference in Bordeaux, one of the leading conferences worldwide about the science and strategic implementation of life-cycle-based methodologies.

PRé Sustainability Consultant Anne Gaasbeek will be presenting SimaPro Share & Collect at 1 p.m. in Side Room D2 on 31 August, and will also be giving live demos. Free trials are available to all sustainability practitioners who want to start working with this tool.
