REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – July 20, 2016 – According to a recently published report by Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, the overall Ethernet Switch market is forecast to exceed $28 billion in 2021. Speed upgrades, software-defined networking, and subscription-based models are expected to shape the market over the forecast period.

“The Ethernet Switch market will remain robust over the next five years,” said Sameh Boujelbene, Senior Director at Dell’Oro Group. “We expect revenue and shipment growth to be driven mainly by the data center. Campus switching, however, will remain soft due in part to cannibalization from WLAN, a trend that we are tracking in our reports. Nevertheless, campus networking will be a dynamic market over the next five years as it undergoes a change, playing a vital role in enabling enterprise digital transformation,” added Boujelbene
