Dell'Oro: First Decline for 10Gbps Ethernet Network Adapter Market

The 10Gbps Ethernet Network Adapter market experienced its first sequential decline in the fourth quarter of last year, according to a newly published report by Dell'Oro Group. The report indicates that the decline was broad-based, affecting adapter card port shipments and revenues, as well as controller unit shipments.

"Despite the most recent quarterly decline, we anticipate strong growth in 10Gbps Ethernet server connectivity in 2009," said Seamus Crehan, Vice President at Dell'Oro Group. "Much of this growth should be driven by server blades where we are seeing increased traction for embedded 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports," Crehan added.
