Ethernet Switch Market Achieves Record Revenue during a Second Quarter
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Sept. 5, 2013
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Sept. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --According to a recent
report by Dell'Oro Group, the trusted source for information about the
telecommunications and networking industries, the Layer 2-3 Ethernet Switch
market continued to exceed $5 Billion in the second quarter 2013 despite
mid-single digit year-on-year declines in Asia Pacific and Latin America.
"Cloud providers' insatiable demand for network equipment continues to spur
almost all the revenue growth in the Ethernet Switch market," said Alan
Weckel, Vice President of Ethernet Switch market research at Dell'Oro Group.
"Cloud providers' demand is offsetting delays in Enterprise spending as
Enterprises push out the migration from 1 Gigabit Ethernet to 10 Gigabit
Ethernet. Yet, as the Cloud market matures, we believe growth in the data
center could likely stall in 2014, and remain on hold until 2015 when
Enterprises begin en-masse migration to 10 Gigabit Ethernet. We see many
Enterprises remaining comfortable with 1 Gigabit Ethernet as most server
platforms lack low-price 10 GE connections which are enabled by
LAN-on-Motherboard (LoM)," stated Weckel.
The report also shows that during the second quarter, Juniper regained the
number three revenue ranking in the market, and that over 10 vendors shipped
10G Base-T for the first time. Despite the increase in vendor offerings, only
three vendors exceeded 10,000 10G Base-T port shipments in the quarter.
