Infonetics: 25GE and 50GE poised to transform data center switching market

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwired - January 19, 2015) - Technology market research firm Infonetics Research, now part of IHS Inc. (NYSE: IHS), today released excerpts from its third quarter 2014 (3Q14) Data Center Network Equipment report, which tracks data center Ethernet switches, Ethernet switches sold in bundles, application delivery controllers (ADCs) and WAN optimization products.

"The data center switching market is poised for another transformation with 25GE and 50GE enabling new data center network architectures targeting large cloud service providers looking to migrate from 10GE switching and server connectivity to 100GE switching and 25GE server connectivity," said Cliff Grossner, Ph.D., directing analyst for data center, cloud and SDN at Infonetics Research.

Grossner added: "A new generation of Broadcom switching silicon will add 25GE and 50GE to the mix of port speeds in the data center for 2015."
