H3C Secures Largest Share of China’s 200G/400G Switch Market in H1 202125-10-2021
With a 64.5-percent market share, H3C became the largest supplier of 200G/400G Ethernet switches in the Chinese market during the first half of 2021, according to the Quarterly Tracking Report on China’s Ethernet Switch Market (2021Q2) by the International Data Corporation (IDC).
Amid the move towards 400 gigabit Ethernet, large-scale application of high-end network equipment in the next-generation data centers, such as switches and core routers, will effectively solve bandwidth bottlenecks, further improve data transfer speed and guarantee high efficiency and stability of networks.
H3C, a renowned supplier of network equipment, has always maintained its competitiveness in the research and development (R&D) of 400G switch products to make sure its switch products always lead the industry in terms of both extendability and the realization of functions. So far, H3C has developed a complete 400G switch product line based on profound insights into the technology trends and users’ various demands.
l In 2016, when the industrial standard of 400G switch ports hadn’t been finalized, H3C accurately predicted that QSFP-DD would become the standard of the ports in the next-generation 400G Ethernet networks, and started the comprehensive R&D of 400G core switches.
l In 2018, H3C joined hands with Intel to take the lead in releasing 400G data center solution and rolled out the first batch of 400G core switch products, becoming a pacesetter in the trend towards high-speed networks.
l In 2019, the company carried out China’s first commercial 400G Ethernet project in cooperation with the Peng Cheng Laboratory based in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen, ushering the construction of Ethernet networks in China into the era of 400G.
l In 2020, H3C jointly with Spirent Communications completed the large-scale SRv6-based 400G performance test, which fully proves that the H3C S12500R Data Center Switch delivers the industry-leading 400GE performance. In the same year, H3C saw the number of ports of its switch products deployed in various networks surpass 10,000, with these products being able to meet the needs of the construction of networks of varying scales.
While pursuing better performance of switch products, H3C has made continuous efforts to facilitate the construction of data centers for enterprises in various industries. With industry-leading S12500R 400G converged switch routers, it has helped a Chinese Internet giant build its 400G data center interconnect (DCI) network, and undertaken the construction of the super core, data center core, and the Internet Data Center (IDC) equipment room of the company’s networks.
H3C has demonstrated strong competitiveness in such aspects as technological response, after-sales service, R&D, test, business management, product quality, and logistics. The company’s data center solutions and high-end switch routers are playing an important role in facilitating the digital transformation of users across a full range of industries including finance, government, Internet, carrier, power & energy, enterprise, education, medical and transportation sectors.
