Our all-Ethernet Open Fabric solution is well positioned to gain market share.

Approximately half of the Open Fabric customers are enterprise data centers, one quarter are mobile operators, and about 20 percent are cloud-scale data centers. The remaining customer base is comprised of high performance computing and government security customers.
