As we all know, the US Government announced a 10% tariff, starting Sept 24, on Chinese imports, which includes networking components and hardware. Enterprises will have to pay more in the future for networking gear because of this tariff. If the first duty isn’t enough to draw a trade agreement from China, then the administration said it would raise the tax to 25% on Jan 1.
Despite of the efforts of the networking companies to decrease the effects, the impact of this policy is significant. They have to pay more for the same incoming components used to build their equipment. It is obvious that they will pass on the added costs to customers by increasing their average selling prices. Enterprises should expect to pay more if they are planning for purchase/ upgrades in the next year.
