Huawei is bigger than most people think. Sure, this is a vendor press release and quotes an analyst firm but:
The IDC report said the global Ethernet switch market recorded approximately US$27.49 billion in revenue in 2017, with a year-over-year growth rate of 5%. Huawei held second place in the global market, and recorded the highest year-over-year growth among the top three vendors. In particular, Huawei ranked first in the Chinese Ethernet switch market for the third consecutive year.
- Ethernet Switches is a $27.5 Billion market
- 5% growth rate is far better than other vendors (who are mostly shrinking)
It would be interesting to consider why Huawei is growing at a such a strong rate while more established vendors are struggling.
