"10 Gbps port shipments finally surged in the second quarter, following two
consecutive quarters of surprising declines in this emerging market," said
Sameh Boujelbene, Senior Analyst covering Controller and Adapter research at
Dell'Oro Group. "Nevertheless, we see this rebound as being reflective of the
depletion of excess inventory witnessed over the course of the second half of
2012, rather than as an acceleration of the 10 Gbps adoption rate. While 10
Gbps shipments continue to be strong in High Performance Computing and Cloud
accounts, recent interviews we conducted revealed that adoption from
Enterprise customers remained slow," added Boujelbene.

The Controller and Adapter report tracks 10 Gbps migration onto stand-alone
servers versus blade servers, and shows that growth came mainly from blade
server shipments, which were fast to move to 10 Gbps, as well as from some
specific deployment scenarios with stand-alone servers. Vendors that are well
positioned in either one of those segments showed strong results during the

The Report also gives details regarding daughter adapter shipments, which had
an exceptional quarter, as well as 10G Base-T shipments on servers which were
surpassed for the first time by 10G Base-T switches during 2Q13.
