Research and Markets: Global Ethernet Switch Market 2011-2015: One of the Main Growth Inhibitors Is Increase In Point Of Failures in Ethernet Networks

DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/536796/global_ethernet) has announced the addition of the "Global Ethernet Switch Market 2011-2015" report to their offering.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Ethernet Switch market to grow at a CAGR of 8.21 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing demand for 10Gb Ethernet switches. The Global Ethernet Switch market has also been witnessing the increasing adoption in storage area network. However, the increase in point of failures in Ethernet networks could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNaio's Networking team said: ''One of the main trends in the Global Ethernet Switch market is the increasing adoption of Ethernet switches in storage area network (SAN) for storage. As a result of the significant increase in enterprise data, enterprises are increasingly investing in data storage networks such as SAN. Also, there is an increasing adoption of Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCI) SAN that uses Ethernet switches. Ethernet switches which support IP traffic also support iSCI traffic. Hence, the growing popularity of iSCI SAN is leading to an increasing adoption of Ethernet switches in SAN storage.''

According to the report, the main factor that is driving the Global Ethernet Switch market is the increasing adoption of 10Gb Ethernet switches. Service providers and enterprises in developed countries have already adopted 10Gb Ethernet equipment. Service providers and enterprises in developing economies such as India and China are expected to increase their adoption of 10Gb Ethernet switches in the coming years. In addition, across the globe, there is strong demand for Top-of-rack systems compared to blade switches and modular switches. Hence, this strong demand for Top-of-rack switches drives the Global Ethernet Switch market in the future.

Reflections from an Interop Veteran and Alum

When I returned to the Fiber Mountain™ offices in Connecticut after exhibiting at Interop Las Vegas 2015, I couldn’t help but think about how much the event has evolved through the years. I have been attending this seminal IT and networking conference since its inception in 1986 when it was called the TCP/IP Vendor Workshop, focused on interoperability of various TCP/IP program stacks.

What Fiber Mountain's Interop Recognition Means for Our Industry

When Fiber Mountain™ began its journey with a launch at Interop New York last fall, we certainly believed that we had a solution that would make a significant impact in the data center space.

What On-Board Optics Means for Density and Flexibility

This past week I read an article in Lightwave Magazine and another in Network World about the formation of the Consortium for On-board Optics (COBO), a group that seeks to create specifications and increase the faceplate density of data center switches and adapters.

Scaling Hyperscale in an Age of Exponential Growth and Virtualization

Over the past several years server, network, storage and application virtualization has revolutionized the way hyperscale data centers are built by consolidating workloads. The trend has simplified network architecture significantly and resulted in huge cost savings as well.
