REDWOOD CITY, Calif., June 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In a newly published report by Dell'Oro Group, the trusted source for information about the telecommunications and networking industries, 10 Gbps Ethernet controller and adapter shipments declined for the second consecutive quarter.  This was the first consecutive decline in the seven years of reporting the market.  In contrast, shipments of 10G Base-T climbed to over 10% of overall market shipments.

"Continued softness in the server market, slow depletion of 10 Gbps inventory built up in the first half of 2012, combined with the persistent interest in 1 Gbps, contributed to the weakness in 10 Gbps shipments" said Sameh Boujelbene, Senior Analyst covering the Controller and Adapter market at Dell'Oro Group. "In contrast, 10G Base-T products from Intel flew off the shelf to both large and small server manufacturers," added Boujelbene.

The Controller and Adapter report analyzes the timing and impact of the availability of lower priced 10 Gbps switches, depletion of excess inventory and the introduction of Intel's new server platform named Ivy Bridge.
