According to four leading analyst firms –  Crehan Research, Infonetics, Dell’Oro and MZA – Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise continued to gain market share in Q4 of 2013 in managed LAN, data center switching, wireless LAN, telephony and IP telephony.

Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise’s market success was shown by:

  • Managed LAN share grew faster than the market worldwide
  • Wireless LAN market share increased worldwide
  • Fastest enterprise data center switching vendor growth
  • Number one in EMEA line shipments according to Dell’Oro and MZA for Q4 2013
  • Number one in Western Europe line shipments according to MZA for Q4 2013

LAN and Data Center success
For the overall Managed LAN market, there was double-digit growth in Central and Latin America (CALA) as well as Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) regions where there is a declining market.

Also contributing to the overall market share increase was the North America market share that grew twice as fast as the overall market.

According to Crehan Research, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise was the fastest-growing data center switching vendor for 2013, reporting growth nearly six times faster than the market.

Wireless LAN
ALUE wireless LAN interactive/outdoor access points and controller revenues grew at nearly five times the market rate in APAC and over three times the market rate in EMEA. Important to the growth was the access point portion of the portfolio as customers transitioned from a traditional controller-based model to the new distributed architectures.
