Dell’Oro Group Forecasts Accelerated Adoption of 40 Gbps Router Technologies

According to a recent report by Dell'Oro Group, the trusted source for information about the networking and telecommunications industries, the growth of Internet video traffic will drive growth of the Service Provider Router market over the next five years. Service Provider Routers are used as the underlying infrastructure of the Internet, and the Dell'Oro report highlights the product and technology transitions required to meet demands placed on the Internet by video traffic.

"The Internet is on the verge of four-fold speed overhaul," said Shin Umeda, Vice President of Routers research at Dell'Oro Group. "Routers with 10 Gigabits (one Gigabit equals one billion bits) technologies have become common place, and we expect the transition to 40 Gigabits per second to accelerate over the next few years," added Umeda.
