10 GbE contributing to sustained growth for Ethernet switches

Posted on 7th May 2013 @ 10:12 AM

The rising popularity of 10 Gbps Ethernet solutions is combining with broad technology trends to create growth opportunities in the Ethernet switching market. According to a recent TechNavio study, the switching sector will likely expand by a compound annual growth rate of approximately 8.2 percent from 2012 until 2016.

The increase in 10 GbE deployment is not the only thing contributing to the rise in the switching sector. The study found that many organizations are implementing Ethernet switches within storage area networks. This is positioning the market for solid growth, but issues with Ethernet point of failures could hold back market expansion in this area.

Networking needs are rising in a variety of areas, particularly within the data center. Many experts agree that cloud computing, virtualization and other emerging trends are contributing to a growing need for advanced network solutions in a variety of sectors. As a result, the network is emerging as a business priority, not just a supporting solution. This is leading to new sales opportunities in network equipment and cabling, especially as more sophisticated solutions are needed for internal network systems.
