Industry Prepping For 25/50/100 Gigabit Ethernet

IDC's Mehra said refresh cycles helped boost the switching market during the quarter as companies are preparing networks for digital transformation. Although 10 GbE and 40 GbE are expected to be the primary revenue drivers of the overall switching market in 2016, companies are beginning to look at higher-density solutions, he said. 

"Price erosion played a role globally, especially in the 10/40 GbE segments, as the industry prepares for 25/50/100 GbE shipments to commence in volume," said Mehra.
