Networking equipment market in Central and Eastern Europe: specifics of Russia and Poland

The telecommunications and networking equipment market in the Central and Eastern European (CEE) region can be described by similar trends and tendencies. This is also true of the major vendors on the market, which most often recruit from the top ten list of worldwide foreign equipment producers. Nevertheless, the examples of Russia and Poland show that each CEE country has its own specifics and features too.
In 2009, the telecommunications and networking equipment market in CEE noted positive impulses despite the hard financial conditions in the region. However, the situation and trends on the market were not the same in all countries due to different levels of infrastructural development as well as popularity of various services. For instance, in Russia the market value increased in 2009 fuelled by growing infrastructural investments from mobile operators. On the other hand, in Poland, where 3G networks were kicked off much earlier, the market noted a decline as the main operators limited their budget spending due to the financial crisis. Within the market of networking equipment for the SME and SOHO sector, the biggest changes in 2009 were noted in Poland, where Chinese vendor TP-Link noted substantial growth, becoming one of the market leaders.
