NETGEAR Tops Globally in Web-Managed Ethernet Switching


NETGEAR earns a global top position for web-managed fixed configuration Ethernet switching. According to IHS Infonetics Ethernet Switches Market Share and Forecasts, 1Q15 Edition, June 2015, NETGEAR surpassed long-time leader HP for the first time in this switching category since HP’s acquisition of 3Com.

NETGEAR was recognised by IHS Infonetics veteran Matthias Machowinski, research director for enterprise networking. The vendors ranking was done under the multitude of ports shipped worldwide; thereby NETGEAR galloped 29 percent of market share.

Machowinski further cited that Buyers are shifting toward switches with advanced capabilities, such as enhanced management, PoE, and higher speeds, to accommodate increasing demands on networks. In the SMB market, this is creating a shift from unmanaged to web-managed switches. As a well-known brand with an extensive smart switch portfolio, NETGEAR is well positioned to take advantage of these shifts.

Joyous with the recognition, Subhodeep Bhattacharya, Regional Director of NETGEAR in India and South Asia said, In India we are growing fast in terms of port count and revenue on web-managed switches for some time and we expect to be a leader in the segment in India as well. Considering our entrenched competition, it’s quite a coup. “We attribute our success to on-going innovation across our entire switching portfolio of ProSAFE® switches — such as ground-breaking PoE chassis switches, fully 10 Gigabit Ethernet web-managed switches and revolutionary form-factor Click Switches. This relentless drive to deliver high-performance features and ease-of-use has enabled NETGEAR to supply organizations of all sizes. Our customers know that as they grow, our switching solutions scale with them and offer unequalled value.”
