Research and Markets: Global Ethernet Switch Market 2011-2015: One of the Main Growth Inhibitors Is Increase In Point Of Failures in Ethernet Networks

DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Ethernet Switch Market 2011-2015" report to their offering.

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 TechNaio'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.

Is Your Network Ready for the Internet of Everything?

The telephone industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation that began with the introduction of IP-based data networks in the early 1990s and then with Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in the late 1990s, and it now includes all forms ofvoice, video, and messaging communications.

Building a Secure and Scalable Multimedia IP Exchange

As fixed and mobile operators increasingly move to IP-based networks, the complexity required to interconnect these networks grows dramatically. Faced with increasing competition from all corners and constant challenge to grow revenues, operators are struggling with the variety and disparities in partner and customer networks.

How Carriers Can Optimize for LTE Roaming

Connectivity between mobile network operators (MNO) in 4G LTE is much more complex than it was in legacy networks.This complexity is primarily due to the change in focus. LTE is not a voice-focused roaming environment, but rather a datacentric environment.
