Network research firm, the Dell’Oro Group, reports that Alcatel-Lucent gained almost five percentage points of service provider edge router market share in 2009, reaching 20%, the first time in ten years that a vendor other than Juniper has occupied the No. 2 position.
According to Basil Alwan, president of Alcatel-Lucent’s IP Activities and head of carrier portfolio strategy:
"Dell Oro’s report for 2009 reinforces the market success and momentum that we started back in 2004 and that continues to this day. The service provider edge is where operators define and deliver services for residential, mobile and business customers, making it a key focus for capital investment, despite the tough economic environment throughout 2009. This is the market opportunity that Alcatel-Lucent’s service router portfolio is ideally suited to address, and the reason we’ve taken another five points of market share in the last year."
