Dell'Oro: 10 Gbps Ethernet LAN on Motherboard Forecast

A newly published report by Dell'Oro Group is forecasting that 10 Gbps Ethernet LAN on Motherboard (LOM) shipments will surpass those of network adapter cards by the end of this year. The report, which provides a 5-year market forecast, indicates that blade servers will be the catalyst for driving the initial ramp of LOMs, with rack and tower servers contributing to subsequent volumes.

"Although blade server shipments are a small portion of overall server unit shipments, the volumes on this class of server as projected through 2011 are still large enough to drive 10 Gbps Ethernet LOM shipments above that of 10 Gbps Ethernet adapter card shipments," said Seamus Crehan, Vice President at Dell'Oro Group.
