Dell'Oro: Service Provider Core Router Market to Rebound

The Service Provider Core Router market will see an uptick in growth in 2014 and 2015 as service providers upgrade Internet backbone networks with recently-introduced core routers, according to a newly published report by Dell’Oro Group.  The report predicts the new core router technology will drive the Service Provider Core Router market to near double-digit growth over each of the next three years, rebounding from the 10 percent decline in 2012.

“We also expect core routers and new high-capacity edge routers to be deployed into numerous metro area networks to accommodate localized traffic loads,” said Alam Tamboli, Business Analyst at Dell’Oro Group.  “Service providers will continue to increase purchases of these routers as they extend their backbone networks closer to end users to handle regional traffic,” added Tamboli.
