According to a recent Forecast Report by Dell’ (News - Alert)Oro Group, there will be growing demand for 10 Gbps server ports and is expected to grow more than fivefold by 2017.
Dell'Oro Group, a trusted source for market information, provides in-depth, objective research and analysis to enable companies in networking and telecom sphere to make fact based decisions.
Dell'Oro Group’s latest five-Year Controller and Adapter forecast Report has just been released. It offers complete coverage of the Ethernet Controller and Adapter market and is awaited eagerly by the stake holders.
The Dell’Oro report predicts 10 Gbps server ports adoption to grow more than fivefold. It also predicts that the uptake of 40 Gbps server ports will be faster than that of 10 Gbps.
Sameh Boujelbene, senior analyst covering Controller & Adapter market research at Dell'Oro Group, indicated that they expect a hard-hitting price drop in 10 Gbps switches within the first six months of 2013. He went on to add that the price drop will also thrust 10 Gbps server adoption, as switches aggregating servers make up more than one third of the end-price.
He further said that they expect that the server migration to 40 Gbps would be quicker than 10 Gbps, as higher density switches come to market, and service providers – or "the cloud" – become a larger portion of the customers.
In the Dell’Oro five-Year Controller and Adapter Forecast Report, the 10G Base-T technology is also discussed, with expert opinions on why it is now a critical technology for small and medium-sized businesses.
It also discusses the server ports both of 40 Gbps and 10 Gbps, and analyzes the merits and flaws of 40 Gbps and 10 Gbps drivers.
It covers the complete Ethernet Controller and Adapter market and provides comparative details on average selling prices, port shipments and manufacturers’ revenue for all available Ethernet options covering 1 Gbps, 10 Gbps and 40 Gbps.
The report also provides a detailed analysis on Fiber Channel over Ethernet controllers and adapters.
