Edge Router & Gateway Markets 2020-2025

The goal of CIR’s report is to identify the opportunities for edge routers and gateways and to quantify theses opportunities in terms of both revenues and volume shipments from 2021 to 2025. The report also discusses how the edge router and gateway market is distributed geographically. This report discusses how new applications are driving the need for edge routers and gateways.  Market drivers discussed are Internet-of-Things, factory networks, autonomous vehicles, networked kiosks and AI.  This report also contains strategic profiles of leading vendors and startups active in edge computing space.  Among the companies profiled are Advantech, Cisco, Dell, HPE/DXC, InHand, Moxa, Juniper, Microsoft, Nokia and Ubiquiti.

This report is one of six market studies that CIR is producing in the edge computing space.  The other volumes in this series cover edge servers, edge computing software, edge network security, edge computing services and edge chips/processors.
