Campus Ethernet Switch NaaS Market Grows over 300% Y/Y to New All-Time High in 4Q22, According to 650 Group

HPE Aruba’s NaaS Offering Takes Early Market Lead Followed by New Vendor Entrants and Incumbent Vendor Offerings

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev., March 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A newly released report by 650 Group, a leading Market Intelligence Research firm for communications, campus, data center, and cloud markets, provides unique insight into the NaaS market for campus/enterprise switching. While Managed Service Providers (MSPs) historically took vendor equipment to offer Solutions as-a-Service, vendors offering the solution directly via the channel are a relatively new phenomenon of the past two years. Our latest report reflects the idea that the needs of enterprises are different now and will continue to evolve away from pure CAPEX consumption models.

“NaaS is not a new concept for Campus Ethernet Switch networks, however, it has historically been implemented by MSPs or local resellers,” said Alan Weckel, Founder and Technology Analyst at 650 Group. “The NaaS market for campus switching is still in the early stages of adoption but is showing robust growth. Existing vendors like HPE Aruba and new vendors like NileSecure are vying for first mover advantage. Vendors will continue to shift revenue away from traditional one-time CAPEX models towards subscription and NaaS models to meet customer demand. Customers want options and flexibility as hybrid and remote work are here to stay, and applications reside in a multi-cloud world.”

650 Group’s Quarterly Ethernet Switch – Campus Switching NaaS report includes segmentation on a regional and worldwide basis and provides market data for the China and non-China markets. It also looks at the adoption rate of NaaS compared to Cloud Managed Solutions and provides additional adoption metrics. The reports will also examine the vendor’s current revenue splits between traditional CAPEX and subscription-related revenue. Future reports will include additional segmentation and vendors.
