Price Declines Will Drive 10 Gbps Server Ports
According to Dell’Oro Group, 10 Gbps server ports are expected to grow more than five-fold by 2017. Sameh Boujelbene, senior analyst/Controller & Adapter markets, said the group forecasts a price decline in 10 Gbps switches during the first six months of this year, driven by a switch-refresh cycle based on Broadcom Trident II switch silicon. This reportedly will propel 10 Gbps server adoption because switches that aggregate servers comprise more than one-third of the end-to-end price. Dell’Oro also predicts server migration to 40 Gbps will speed up as higher-density switches come to market, and as service providers or cloud services become larger customer segments.
