Global 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) Market to Reach $5.9 Billion by 2017, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, California (PRWEB) August 29, 2011

The last couple of decades have witnessed a broad sweep of technological developments in computer networking. Computer networking speeds are accelerating significantly beyond the standard 10-Gigabit Ethernet (GbE). From data transmission speeds of 100 megabits per second to 10 gigabits per second to now over 100 gigabits per second, networking speeds have been evolving in sync with growing business needs. The massive data explosion triggered by bandwidth heavy multimedia content, such as, video, voice, multimedia, has and will continue to throw the focus on data transfer rate capability of computer networks. The continuously growing number of users sharing a network, use of advanced applications (i.e. internet-based applications, video communication), faster desktop PCs, and faster network servers, all of which contribute to traffic congestion, are creating a dire need for networks to support gigabit transmission speeds. This insatiable need for faster transmission speeds is forecast to continue gathering momentum as businesses adopt bleeding edge networking technologies, such as data warehousing, cloud computing, server virtualization, all of which have immense resource demands i.e. higher storage needs, and bandwidth-hogging applications. The scenario throws the spotlight on new generation of high-speed computer network standards, such as 40-gigabit Ethernet (GbE), and 100-gigabit Ethernet (GbE).

Strapped with the ability to deliver Ethernet frames at 40 and 100 gigabits per second across multiple Gb/s lanes, the 40 and 100GbE networking standards represent the future of high-speed networking. Growth in demand in the coming years will be driven by numerous advantages offered by deploying faster 40-gigabit and 100-gigabit networks, with the prime reason being economics of cost and savings offered by higher network efficiency levels. Reduced power consumption that comes with higher transmission speeds also represents a major advantage. All of these factors will drive adoption of and upgradation to 40G and 100G networks and spell opportunities downstream for 40-gigabit Ethernet and 100-gigabit Ethernet products/modules, such as, 40 and 100GbE optical transceivers and transponders.

Ethernet will continue to play an ever-important role in handling rising data traffic on the Internet, and technology developments will continue to drive Ethernet speed/technology. The road map has been laid out and signposts and milestones set out for 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) market. The market has huge potential in view of current data/traffic saddled networks and with 10GbE becoming increasingly insufficient. With the ink barely dry on the newest 40GbE and 100GbE technology standard, potential evolution of 400GbE and 1TerabitE, the next rate of Ethernet speed, is already creating a flutter. A majority of the existing data centers currently employ 10 Gigabit/second Ethernet over balanced twisted-pair copper cabling and optical fiber in their backbone infrastructure. Widespread adoption of 10G Ethernet is major factor for paving way for next-generation Ethernet. Greater penetration of 10G Ethernet in edge devices would result in advancement of 40G Ethernet in network core devices. Major online companies such as Amazon and Google have already indicated their desire to use 40GbE and 100GbE in their core networks.

While 10G and 40G implementations have been underway over the last couple of years, and the technology has achieved reasonable levels of market penetration, the 100G technology is still in the embryonic incubation phase. Although the initial ratification of the 100GbE is complete, efforts are still ongoing to expand the 100GbE standard. 40GbE in contrast is already being adopted by data centers at equipment points, such as, servers, and the same for 100GbE speeds at the server level is forecast to occur in the next five to six years. Network backbone, campus and metro links are forecast to be early adopters of 100GbE. Until the 100G market establishes its position, 40G is expected to continue growing and enjoy robust opportunities. Currently, a direct migration to 100GbE is beset with disadvantages, such as, higher costs for end-users, and incompatibility issues with existing transport infrastructures. One advantage that 100G technology is expected to have over 40G is in terms of leveraging the technological developments of 40G, thereby redeeming the current disadvantages/pitfalls of the 40G technology.

As stated by the new market research report on 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), US remains the largest regional market worldwide. Asia-Pacific represents the fastest growing regional market with revenue from the region projected to wax at a CAGR of about 80% over the analysis period!
