Price Drops on 10 Gbps Ethernet Switches to Spur Server Attach, Dell’Oro Forecasts
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Feb. 13, 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 more than five-fold by 2017.
“We are forecasting an aggressive price decline in 10 Gbps switches in the first half of 2013 that will be driven by a switch refresh cycle based on Broadcom Trident II switch silicon. We expect this price decline will propel 10 Gbps server adoption because switches aggregating servers comprise more than one-third of the end-to-end price,” said Sameh Boujelbene, Senior Analyst covering Controller & Adapter market research at Dell’Oro Group. “In addition, we predict server migration to 40 Gbps to be faster than 10 Gbps, as higher density switches come to market, and service providers, or “the cloud” become a larger portion of the customers,” added Boujelbene.
The report discusses how the drivers of 40 Gbps differ from those of 10 Gbps, and why 10G Base-T is such a critical technology for Small and Medium Businesses.
