Alcatel-Lucent was the fastest growing Data Center Switching vendor in Q3’2012

In the Infonetics Research report “Data Center Network Equipment, Quarterly Worldwide and Regional Market Share Size and Forecast, 3Q12”, issued Dec. 10, 2012, Alcatel-Lucent, with its award winning Data Center Switching solution outperformed all other vendors, with revenue growing almost 31% from Q2’2012, compared to a market growth of just 0.7%. 


According to Sam Barnett, Directing Analyst for Data Center and Cloud, Infonetics Research, “Alcatel-Lucent has the top spot among its competitors in terms of percentage revenue growth quarter-over-quarter worldwide in Q3’2012. Only one other vendor saw double digit growth from Q2 to Q3, with the rest in the low single digits or even negative.”

“While the rest of industry grew at an average of less than one percent, we are at a double digit pace and we attribute that to the quality and breath of offerings we are able to deliver to our customers,” said, Stephane Robineau, General Manager, Networks Business at Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise. “We’re pleased that we’ve been able to perform so well in this tough economy.  As enterprises continue to expand their networks, they are seeking solutions that optimize performance, reduce complexity and most importantly provide a seamless user experience.
