Xylan has captured the number two slot in the Australian switched ATM market for the first calendar quarter of 1998, according to IDC Australia figures.
Xylan achieved 15.43 per cent market share of all ATM switches sold in Australia, based on ports sold during the quarter. IDC Australia attributed the success to the company's strong sales in the health, government, telecommunications and network integration industries.
IDC reports Cisco remains the dominant switched ATM player with 51 per cent share for the quarter.
However, IDC analyst Tim Sheedy commented the latest figures indicate Xylan has improved its market position, up from sixth overall for the total switched ATM market in 1997.
"Xylan has obviously improved their share (this year)," he said.
Xylan's Australia/New Zealand managing director David Keane proudly declared: "Obviously, we're pleased that IDC has found that Xylan is number two ahead of more established competitors like Bay, 3Com and Fore."
