According to a recent Dell’Oro ‘Ethernet Switch – Layer 2+3 5-Year Forecast’ report, the overall Ethernet Switch market is forecast to exceed US$28 billion in 2021, with speed upgrades, software-defined networking and subscription-based models expected to shape the market over the forecast period.
“The Ethernet Switch market will remain robust over the next five years,” said Sameh Boujelbene, Senior Director at Dell’Oro Group. “We expect revenue and shipment growth to be driven mainly by datacentres. Campus switching, however, will remain soft due in part to cannibalisation from WLAN. Nevertheless, campus networking will be a dynamic market over the next five years as it undergoes a change, playing a vital role in enabling enterprise digital transformation.”
