10 Gigabit Ethernet Switch Market Surpasses Major Milestones

A market research report from Dell'Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, reveals that the 10 Gigabit Ethernet Switch market recently surpassed two major milestones.

According to the report, 10 Gigabit Ethernet Switch port shipments exceeded 100 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2006, and annual revenues handily topped $1 billion during 2006.

“Although modular 10 Gigabit Ethernet switch ports continued to dominate the shipment mix, there was a significant shift toward fixed ports during the quarter,” said Seamus Crehan, Senior Director of Ethernet Switch research at Dell’Oro Group. “This shift resulted in steep average selling price declines,” added Crehan
