Stand-Out Switches Of 2013
The rise of cloud- and software-defined networking (SDN) may be shaking up the traditional networking market, but that hasn't stopped networking players, ranging from Cisco Systems to Brocade Communications Systems from continuing to invest in their bread-and-butter switching portfolios.
Based on data from the NPD Group, a Port Washington, N.Y.-based market research firm that provides data from leading technology distributors, the following represents the "Top 10" best-selling switch brands of 2013. The data is based on the percentage of switch units shipped from January to December 2013. The NPD Group's Distributor Track sales database is comprised primarily of U.S. Global Technology Distribution Council members.
