A recent market research report from Dell’Oro Group indicates that the Ethernet switch market grew for the second consecutive quarter during the third quarter of this year, driven by continued strength in data center deployments.
“Since early 2008, many new product introductions have focused on the data center and many of these products ramped strongly during the most recent quarter,” Dell’Oro Group Director of Ethernet Switch Market Research Alan Weckel said in a statement. “10 Gigabit Ethernet is leading the charge, both as a server connectivity technology and as an aggregation technology within the data center. In the short term, most of the overall Ethernet switch market revenue growth will come from the data center,” Weckel added.
The report also shows that fixed 10 Gigabit Ethernet revenues grew nearly 30 percent during the quarter with most of the growth being driven by purpose-built Fixed 10 Gigabit Ethernet data center products. Cisco and HP lead in this segment with a combined share of almost 70 percent of the total fixed 10 Gigabit Ethernet port shipments. Other vendors with Ethernet switch offerings are 3Com/H3C, Arista, Blade, Brocade, Extreme, Force 10 and Juniper.
