More remote users link to corporate networks and the Internet over Bay Networks? remote access servers than any other, according to new research from Dataquest.
The market research firm found that, in the first quarter of this year, Bay Networks had a 19 per cent share of revenue in this market and an 18 per cent share of ports connected. This compared wth revenue shares of 16 per cent each for Cisco and Shiva and 12 per cent for Digital. Port share figures were 14 per cent for Cisco, 11 per cent for Livingston and 10 per cent for Shiva.
?The remote access market grew 32 per cent between 1995 and 1996,? said Bobbi Murphy, principal analyst of Dataquest?s remote Lan and Internet access programme. ?Bay has been able to capitalise on its acquisition of Xylogics in 1995 and has created a new business unit to better focus on the remote access market.?
This is the third research report this year to place Bay number one in this market - IDC and Dell?Oro Group also gave it this rating.
More good news for Bay - it has signed a $4.1 million deal with the US Internal Revenue Service, which will purchase Centillion 100 Multi-Lan/ATM switches to build an ATM-based campus network in Maryland over the next eight months. The system will link 4,250 employees in the area, including the information systems division.
