Industrial Ethernet Switch Market Development Strategy and Future Prospects 2023

Market Scenario: An Ethernet switch helps in connecting Ethernet devices and helps in receiving frames of data from one device and passes these frames to appropriate switch ports connected to the Ethernet. In general, Ethernet switches use store and forward method for passing frames in which the switch receives and sends the entire frame at once. The switches are capable of storing the frames in data table and can learn the location of devices, such as PLC, SCADA, and others in the industry. The switches are capable of monitoring the network with an LED and providing frame setting capability.

There are two types of industrial Ethernet switches, managed switches and unmanaged switches. Managed switches are capable of supporting SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol), which is used for information collection and configuring and monitoring of network devices. In the case of unmanaged switches, the status of LED indicates the network connectivity. The primary advantage of using managed switch is that it offers port mirroring function.

Get Sample of Report @ Improvement of data center capacities and increase in deployment of Ethernet-based solution in industries are primarily driving the market. The increase in dependency of organizations on data centers, demand for high speed data services, and need for automatic switching devices are fuelling the market growth. The high cost associated with instalment of managed industrial Ethernet switches and lack of expertise are hindering the market growth.

Ethernet switches possess various features such as port mirroring, redundancy, QoS (Quality of Service), IGMP (Internet Group Management Protocol) snooping, and others. With port mirroring, the switch can track the frames sent by or received at the port. Based on this feature, a PC running a program, called protocol analyser, is able to receive or transmit data from many ports that can help during problem solving tools customization. Ethernet switches are capable of withstanding high operating temperatures and high vibration environments.

Key Players Some of the key players in the market are Cisco Systems Inc. (U.S.), Juniper Networks, Inc. (U.S.), Alcatel-Lucent (France), Hewlett Packard Enterprise (U.S.), Polycom (U.S.), Avaya Inc. (U.S.), Microsoft Corporation (U.S.), Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. (Israel), IBM Corporation (U.S.), Brocade Communications Systems, Inc. (U.S.), Siemens AG (Germany), Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd (China), and ZTE Corporation (China), among others.
