Extreme Networks today announced that it has continued to grow its share in the global data centre Ethernet market. Extreme Networks’ growth during Q2, according to The Dell’Oro Group, was highlighted by impressive gains with its fixed 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), purpose built “Top of Rack” switching solutions, as reported in The Dell’Oro Group’s most recent market share update.
Extreme Networks commanded the #2 revenue position for data centre Top-of-Rack switches according to the quarterly market share report, behind only Cisco, driven by its industry leading Summit® X650, Summit X450 and Summit X480 switches. In the “Top of Rack” switch port shipment category, Extreme Networks increased its port shipments by 194% compared to the same quarter one year ago. This demonstrates continued momentum for the Company in the dynamic and demanding data centre Ethernet market.
