ProCurve, the networking arm of vendor giant HP, achieved its strongest ever market share figures in the EMEA theatre during the fourth quarter of 2005, according to data from research house IDC. ProCurve now claims to be the second largest vendor in EMEA for managed ports, picking up 17.8% market share in this segment. According to HP, ProCurve managed to increase its market share by 1.2% during the fourth quarter while Cisco slipped 2% during the same period. Year-on-year, ProCurve sales climbed 17% for the fourth quarter of 2005, comfortably outstripping the overall market growth rate of 11%. “To be announcing our highest ever EMEA market share is a significant landmark for ProCurve Networking,” said Wenceslao Lada, EMEA VP and general manager at ProCurve Networking. “Over the past few years we have made tremendous progress in the market to become the region’s clear number-two vendor.” Lada added: “These strong results prove that ProCurve is taking market share from Cisco and our other competitors, despite a slowing EMEA market. Our continuing growth is a result of the strong relationship we have with the channel, and in how we work with our resellers to sell quality networking products and tailored solutions in both the SMB space and the enterprise market, offering customers a better return on investment than our competitors are able to offer.”
