Huawei saw rapid year-over-year revenue growth in the global enterprise network equipment market in 2017 and moved from 3rd place in 2016 to 2nd place in 2017 in global market share ranking, according to Gartner's recently released Market Share Analysis: Enterprise Network Equipment, Worldwide, 2017.

The company also grew its market share in different regions, most notably in Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. In addition, Huawei saw double-digit growth in switch, WLAN, enterprise router, and firewall market segments, and maintained its position as a leading player in the market. Growth was particularly strong in WLAN, with a year-over-year increase of 101%.
