Lenovo: Niche Player

Known for its server businesses, Lenovo, which has its U.S. headquarters in Morrisville, N.C., made the quadrant because of its top of rack (ToR) switches and embedded modules for Lenovo's blade and flex server systems. While Lenovo remained a top 10 vendor when measured by port shipments and revenue, its sales and revenue for data center networking products declined by more than 40 percent in 2015.

"Not much has happened in the last year," said Fabbi. "The effort to transition from IBM to Lenovo was very difficult, and most of the focus was [on] maintaining market share on the server side, and the networking pieces didn't get a lot of attention."

Lenovo ranks last in both execution and vision on the quadrant.
