TechNavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report - Global Ethernet Switch Market 2011-2015
TechNavio today launched its report, Global Ethernet Switch Market 2011-2015, based on an in-depth analysis covering the Americas, and the EMEA and APAC regions. The report aims to aid decision makers' understanding of the present and future landscape of the 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.
Further, the report reveals that one of the main growth inhibitors is the increase in point of failures in Ethernet networks.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
