10 Gbps to Surpass 1 Gbps Ethernet Controller & Adapter Server Port Shipments
during 2015-2016 Timeframe
A More Bullish Outlook on Server Migration to 40 Gbps
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., July 31, 2013
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., July 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In a newly released 5-Year
Forecast Report by Dell'Oro Group, the trusted source for market information
about the telecommunications and networking industries, 10 Gbps server ports
are expected to grow approximately five-fold by 2017, surpassing 1 Gbps server
ports for the first time in 2015.
"We believe two main factors will drive the crossover point between 1 Gbps and
10 Gbps port shipments on servers between 2015 and 2016, namely price declines
on 10 Gbps switches, and improvements to 10G Base-T technology that is very
important for Small and Medium Businesses," said Sameh Boujelbene, Senior
Analyst covering Controller & Adapter market research at Dell'Oro Group.
"Nevertheless, we still expect a significant portion of the server offerings
based on Grantley, Intel's next server platform planned for 2014/2015, to
deploy 1 Gbps as the default network connection. Server vendors are under
tremendous pricing pressure from Taiwan-based server contract manufacturers
(aka ODMs), and deploying 10 Gbps as the default network connection could put
them at a disadvantage," added Boujelbene.
The new report discusses the mix between the various connectivity options on
servers (1 Gbps, 10 Gbps and 40 Gbps) as well as the mix between Fiber, 10G
Base-T, DAC and KR. The report also reveals that Dell'Oro predicts 40 Gbps
migration will be faster than 10 Gbps, despite potential interim speeds such
as 20 Gbps that are expected to be introduced to the market as early as 2014.
