In a recent Dell’Oro Group report, Gen 6 Fibre Channel revenue is expected to exceed US$1 Billion by 2020, as 32 Gbps Fibre Channel switch port shipments are expected to eclipse over half the market by then.

“The Fibre Channel SAN market is about to go through a significant upgrade to Gen 6 Fibre Channel switches and adapters as Brocade Communication Systems, Cisco Systems, Emulex Corp, and QLogic begin to offer next generation products,” said Alan Weckel, Vice President at Dell’Oro Group. “Storage is going through a significant shift towards flash and the increased speed of 32 Gbps as well as new features will make Gen 6 Fibre Channel a compelling upgrade for many enterprises.”
