Juniper Networks Posts Four Consecutive Quarters of Growth in the Enterprise Ethernet Switch Market and Surpasses One Million Ports Shipped
SUNNYVALE, Calif., August 17, 2009 - Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, today announced that its EX Series Ethernet Switches posted four consecutive quarters of revenue growth through 2Q09 and have surpassed the important milestone of one million ports shipped, according to the most recent Dell'Oro Ethernet Switching Market Report.
Juniper's EX Series switch product revenue for 2Q09 grew 44 percent over the previous quarter, and 312 percent over the same quarter last year. The product line's ongoing success is derived from substantial traction in several industry segments, such as government, higher-education, manufacturing and financial services, including the ultra-low latency core network for NYSE Euronext's consolidated global data centers.
"Based on the companies covered in the Dell'Oro report, over the past five quarters of revenue shipments, Juniper has grown its EX Series switch revenue faster than any enterprise Layer 2/Layer 3 switch vendor entering the market in the previous decade," said Mike Banic, vice president of product marketing, Ethernet Platforms Group at Juniper Networks. "Our strategy to deliver a high-performance network, at a lower total cost of ownership is resonating across the Americas, EMEA and APAC, and is enabling us to gain market share."
Juniper's EX Series represents a new class of switches for the enterprise, designed specifically to meet the demands of today's high-performance businesses. The EX Series, which includes the EX2500, EX3200, EX4200 and EX8200 lines, as well as the upcoming EX2200, advance the economics of networking by enabling a high-performance network infrastructure based on three key tenets - operational simplicity, carrier-class reliability and integrated security.
