SP switching and routing vendor profile: Huawei Technologies
Huawei’s service provider switching and routing (SPSR) revenue growth continues in China, but has slowed elsewhere as market demand fell by more than 20% from last year. Huawei is a formidable competitor with a comprehensive product line. Ovum expects it to continue to lead in China and many emerging nations, but it faces challenges in the IP routing market in developed nations.
