Networking ports hit $39 billion; 40G booming in the data center, 100G taking off in the core

 

Boston, MASSACHUSETTS, April 21, 2014—Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its latest 1G/10G/40G/100G Networking Ports report, which explores the demand for 1 Gigabit, 10 Gigabit, 40 Gigabit, and 100 Gigabit optical and Ethernet ports, the size of the market and how fast each segment is growing, and which technologies and speeds are being adopted on various types of enterprise and service provider equipment.


ANALYST NOTES

“Deployments of 1G, 10G, 40G, and 100G ports once again grew significantly in 2013, as enterprises and service providers invested in their networks to accommodate the growth in traffic, and revenue growth accelerated as buyers shifted to higher bandwidth—and more expensive—ports,” reports Matthias Machowinski, directing analyst for enterprise networks and video at Infonetics Research.


Principal Analyst for Optical at Infonetics and co-author of the report Andrew Schmitt adds: “Coherent 100G is well on its way to completely taking over the core, growing to nearly 80% of all wavelengths by 2016, effectively shutting down competing 10G and 40G deployments.”


NETWORKING PORTS MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  • Worldwide 1G/10G/40G/100G network port revenue grew 5% in 2013 from the prior year, to $39 billion
    • Enterprise port revenue grew 5%, and service provider port revenue increased 4%
  • 1G comprises the lion’s share of ports, while 10G delivers the bulk of revenue, though revenue growth is coming from the emerging 40G and 100G segments
  • The 40G market is in transition as service providers move on to 100G; 40G is, however, finding success in the data center market, resulting in 40G port shipments more than doubling in 2013
    • Infonetics looks for 40G port shipments to nearly triple this year, hitting 1.5 million
  • 100G ports almost quadrupled in 2013, thanks to surging service provider demand for 100G WDM
  • The first 100G ports on enterprise equipment started shipping in 2013, but aren’t expected to become a major factor until 2015
