Dell'Oro: Shipments Begin for Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Switches

Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Switches began shipping in 2Q15, a significant milestone for stepping up the speed of LAN connections at the enterprise edge, according to a new report by Dell'Oro Group, which is now tracking this market.

The top ten vendors tracked in the Enterprise Edge Report include: Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, Avaya, Brocade, Cisco Systems, Dell, Extreme Networks, Hewlett-Packard (including Aruba Networks), Huawei Technologies, Juniper Networks, and Ruckus Wireless.  

"HP and Cisco both shipped Multi-Gigabit Ethernet switches in the second quarter 2015.  HP began shipping Multi-Gigabit enabled ports on its 5400 in April and Cisco on its Catalyst 3000 in June.  This is an exciting change for the Ethernet industry because 2.5 Gbps and 5 Gbps switches will enable significant speed increases in the campus, or 'enterprise edge' environment with little additional cabling infrastructure upgrades," said Chris DePuy, Vice President of Enterprise Edge research at Dell'Oro Group.  "We expect that as 802.11ac Wave 2 Access Points incorporate Multi-Gigabit capabilities, this will drive demand for a switch upgrade cycle."
