REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – December 07, 2015 – A recently published report from Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, revealed the Ethernet Switch – Data Center market surged to $2.6B, setting an all-time record in 3Q15, with the bulk of the increase driven by sales of 40 GE switches. However, in 2016, we predict explosive growth for 100 GE, sales to well-exceed half a billion dollars.
“The quarter was highlighted by Arista achieving the number two rank in revenue for the first time along with strong growth from most vendors and the filling out of next generation 100 GE switch platforms,” said Alan Weckel, Vice President at Dell’Oro Group. “Looking forward to the last quarter of 2015 and early 2016, we expect to see a very strong ramp in 100 GE as customers like Amazon, Facebook, Google, and Microsoft begin widespread deployments,” stated Weckel.
The Quarterly Ethernet Switch – Data Center Report also indicates there is a significant difference in market share and rank across geographical regions with Cisco, Arista, and Juniper being the top three vendors in North America, but Cisco, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, and Huawei being the top three vendors in China in the third quarter 2015.
