REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In a newly released

"We are forecasting an aggressive price decline in 10 Gbps switches in the
first half of 2013 that will be driven by a switch refresh cycle based on
Broadcom Trident II switch silicon. We expect this price decline will propel
10 Gbps server adoption because switches aggregating servers comprise more
than one-third of the end-to-end price," said Sameh Boujelbene, Senior Analyst
covering Controller & Adapter market research at Dell'Oro Group. "In
addition, we predict server migration to 40 Gbps to be faster than 10 Gbps, as
higher density switches come to market, and service providers, or "the cloud"
become a larger portion of the customers," added Boujelbene.

The report discusses how the drivers of 40 Gbps differ from those of 10 Gbps,
and why 10G Base-T is such a critical technology for Small and Medium
Businesses.
