ProCurve Networking by HP is now the world’s second largest global enterprise networking vendor in revenue, ports and Power over Ethernet (PoE), according to a recent report by market research firm Dell’Oro Group.
For the third calendar quarter of 2006, ProCurve grew its revenue share by 15.5 percent quarter-over-quarter and increased its overall port shipments by 20.4 percent sequentially. Both figures are higher than industry growth rates for the respective areas.
Dell’Oro Group also identified ProCurve as the fastest growing networking vendor in Layer 2 through Layer 7 total ports, and PoE.
“ProCurve sets itself apart from the industry by focusing on five key areas: advanced and differentiated solutions, ease of use, reliability, security, and open standards with interoperability,” said John McHugh, vice president and general manager, ProCurve Networking by HP. “That we have surpassed the competition to take over as the second largest networking vendor in total revenue share is yet another validation that the market recognizes ProCurve’s commitment to providing networks that enhance security, increase productivity and reduce complexity.”
The Dell’Oro Group report, which examined the overall Ethernet switch market for the third calendar quarter of 2006, showed that ProCurve increased its overall port share to 8.4 percent of the market and increased PoE shipments 82.5 percent compared to the industry growth rate of 24.5 percent.
