Campus switching is entering a new era of growth driven by a major upgrade cycle of an aging infrastructure and the explosive growth in devices connecting to the network such as Internet of Things.  With higher demand on new use cases for wired connectivity such as automation, analytics, and network visibility, and the need for new access switches to aggregate wireless LAN access points, Dell’Oro Group is offering in-depth analysis specifically on Ethernet switches built and optimized for deployment outside the data center, for the purpose of connecting users and things to the corporate Local Area Network (LAN).  This deep-dive analysis into the campus segment of the overall Ethernet Switch market portrays and explains the disruptive changes in campus networks.

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

  • What are the new features that campus switches should support to enable digital transformation?
  • How long will the refresh cycle last?
  • What is the impact of IoT devices on Campus Switching?
  • What is the impact of Wireless LAN on Campus Switching?
  • How is the adoption of 100 Mbps vs. 1.0 vs. 2.5 vs. 5.0 Gbps for user connectivity unfolding?
  • How is the adoption of 10 vs. 40 vs. 25 vs. 100 Gbps for uplinks/core unfolding?
  • What is the split between Small and Medium Businesses vs. Large Enterprises?
  • How is the adoption of subscription-based models evolving?
  • How is the adoption of Cloud-managed switches unfolding?

To answer these and other important questions, Dell’Oro Group currently delivers both quarterly reports and 5-year forecast reports for this market segment.

What’s the difference among Dell’Oro Group’s Ethernet Switch reports?

  • Ethernet Switch — Campus reports provide a more detailed and comprehensive analysis focused on network connectivity of users and things (PCs, IP phones, security cameras, printers, wireless LAN access points, etc.) and excludes switches deployed in the data center.
  • Ethernet Switch – Data Center reports provide a more detailed and comprehensive analysis focused on the Data Center network and how the architecture of the network core is changing (connecting servers, storage systems, and aggregation switches, etc.)
  • Ethernet Switch — Layer 2+3 reports provide an overview of the entire Ethernet Switch market, including a view on Copper vs. Fiber Connections, Power over Ethernet, and Smart Managed switches, and separately reports software-based Ethernet switch functionality which is not included in the physical switch.
