This IDC study provides market forecasts from 2021 to 2025 as well as an outlook on the Japan enterprise network equipment market, which consists of enterprise Ethernet switches, enterprise routers, and enterprise wireless LAN equipment. Despite a stagnation in economic activities due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Japan enterprise network equipment market achieved positive growth in 2020 along with the progress of network construction for GIGA schools. In terms of technology, triggered by the implementation at GIGA schools and the review of enterprise network management in the next normal, there is a growing interest in cloud-managed network solutions that enable network equipment management and network control by using a management platform outside in-house networks. "In order to differentiate cloud-managed solutions that each company is focusing on, it is effective to release functions in a short period of time based on agile development to strengthen the solution. In addition, frequent function additions are effective for maintaining and improving customer satisfaction on subscription services. By creating an environment in which new network management functions can always be used, customers are expected to be highly motivated to use these solutions," says Kenichi Kusano, group manager, Communications, IDC Japan.
