IP Infusion: Think Networking

Networking continues to be a growth story, even in this tentative business climate. While other companies in the tech sector are facing issues with execution in the skepticism of the ongoing pandemic environment, the networking industry is seeing renewed interest and continued growth. Networking services and products are critical infrastructure, and especially in economically challenging times where signs of recession are becoming the status quo, infrastructure is one area where organizations won’t be able to cut corners.

Enterprise networking vendor Arista Networks recently announced their first Billion Dollar Quarter, surpassing Wall Street’s estimates. “In Q2 2022, we achieved our first billion-dollar revenue quarter, despite the challenges of an uncertain supply-chain environment,” said Arista Networks CEO Jayshree Ullal, in a statement. Arista also raised their guidance for the third quarter, as a show of confidence in the growth of the networking market.

Critical to many network strategies will be adoption of open standards networking. Network buildouts continue to grow in complexity, and open networking is becoming an important and indispensable strategy to ensure network upgrades won’t be a one-way street to vendor lock in.

Even market leaders like Arista are recognizing the importance of an open networking future, acquiring Pluribus Networks to add to their product portfolio. Pluribus is a vendor of Network Operating Systems, and was recently recognized by technology consultancy GigaOm as a leader in this market segment, alongside IP Infusion.
