“Fiber expansion projects continue to expand around the world, as evidenced by continued strong demand for OLT ports,” said Jeff Heynen, Sr. Research Director, Broadband Access and Home Networking. “The sustained fiber investments are a clear sign that providers realize just how critical premium residential broadband access is to their business,” explained Heynen.

25/50/100 Gbps Ethernet Controller and Adapter Revenue Accounted for Half of the Market in 2Q 2020, According to Dell’Oro Group

“Shipment of 25 Gbps and 50 Gbps ports grew double-digits quarter-over-quarter as the Tier 1 and 2 Cloud service providers added server capacity to meet a surge of demand for Cloud services stemming from the pandemic.

Open RAN Market Expected to Eclipse $5 B, According to Dell’Oro Group

“SASE holds great appeal because it unifies and simplifies networking and security across a wide variety of network use cases, ranging from larger headquarter and branch networks down to individual users,” Mauricio Sanchez, Research Director commented. “Over the next five years, we expect the initial thrust for SASE to come from small to medium enterprises, for whom unification and simplification rank high, but also expect larger enterprises to begin pivoting.”

AI’s Potential Held Back by Hardware Bottlenecks, Dell’Oro Says


The adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) accelerators in data centers could be stymied if existing hardware bottlenecks aren’t addressed, warned Dell’Oro analyst Baron Fung, in a blog post this week. “AI is driving the need for specialized solutions at the chip and system level in the form of accelerated compute servers optimized for training and inference workloads at the data center and at the edge,” he wrote.

Open RAN and the Everest of inflated expectations
