Increasing bandwidth requirements, data center consolidation, and virtualization, are driving demand for 10, 25, 40, 50, and 100 Gbps Ethernet controllers and adapters.

To take advantage of the opportunities in this market, component manufacturers, equipment vendors, service providers, and financial institutions need to answer critical business questions including:

  • How quickly are data centers migrating server connections to 10, 25, 40, 50, and 100 Gbps Ethernet?
  • How is server migration to high speeds different between enterprise data centers and Cloud data centers?
  • How is server migration to high speeds different between stand-alone (rack and tower), blade and high-density servers?
  • What is the adoption of the various fiber and copper technologies such as 10G Base-T?
  • Which system and component vendors are gaining market share?

To answer these and other important questions, Dell’Oro Group delivers both quarterly reports and 5-year forecasts on the Controller & Adapter market.
