Jan 11, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Research and Markets announced the addition of the "Global Ethernet Switch Market 2011-2015" report to its offerings.
In a release, Research and Markets noted that report highlights include:
TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Ethernet Switch market to grow at a CAGR of 8.21 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing demand for 10Gb Ethernet switches. The Global Ethernet Switch market has also been witnessing the increasing adoption in storage area network. However, the increase in point of failures in Ethernet networks could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Networking team said: ''One of the main trends in the Global Ethernet Switch market is the increasing adoption of Ethernet switches in storage area network (SAN) for storage. As a result of the significant increase in enterprise data, enterprises are increasingly investing in data storage networks such as SAN. Also, there is an increasing adoption of Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCI) SAN that uses Ethernet switches. Ethernet switches which support IP traffic also support iSCI traffic. Hence, the growing popularity of iSCI SAN is leading to an increasing adoption of Ethernet switches in SAN storage.''
According to the report, the main factor that is driving the Global Ethernet Switch market is the increasing adoption of 10Gb Ethernet switches. Service providers and enterprises in developed countries have already adopted 10Gb Ethernet equipment. Service providers and enterprises in developing economies such as India and China are expected to increase their adoption of 10Gb Ethernet switches in the coming years. In addition, across the globe, there is strong demand for Top-of-rack systems compared to blade switches and modular switches. Hence, this strong demand for Top-of-rack switches drives the Global Ethernet Switch market in the future.
