REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – December 3, 2014 –A recently published report by Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, revealed the Ethernet Switch market reached an all-time high in revenue and port shipments during the third quarter 2014 with the data center contributing 40 percent of total market revenue.
“The market for Ethernet switching continues to expand as both the data center and campus markets grew sequentially. We continue to see many segments of the market grow with broad-based regional support,” said Alan Weckel, Vice President of Ethernet Switch research at Dell’Oro Group. “At the same time, we are seeing the early stages of new upgrade cycles as some Cloud customers move beyond 10 GE for server connectivity, and the campus readies itself for the introduction of 2.5 and 5.0 GE, as well as the move towards more Fixed topologies. Given a robust base and numerous catalysts for growth, we anticipate growth for 2015 and one of the better years for switching since the recession.”
In the third quarter 2014, combined revenues of Hewlett-Packard and Huawei contributed more than 50 percent of the Chinese market. At the same time, there were significant changes in market share and rankings in 10 GE Top-of-Rack switching.
