REDWOOD CITY, Calif., July 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a recently published report by Dell'Oro Group, the trusted source for information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, the Layer 2-3 Ethernet Switch market is expected to exceed $25 B in 2019.

"The consumption model for Ethernet switching continues to evolve towards one of OPEX instead of the traditional CAPEX model we have experienced for decades," said Alan Weckel, Vice President of Ethernet Switch Market Research at Dell'Oro Group.  "When we look at the campus market in particular, we see vendors offering Cloud based solutions, as Ethernet switching becomes a supportive technology to wireless connectivity.  This will be especially true on multi-gigabit, 2.5 Gbps and 5.0 Gbps products that begin shipping later this year."

The Ethernet Switch 5-Year Forecast Report also indicates that in order to succeed, Ethernet switch vendors must reinvent themselves to adapt to both a changing set of end customers and a different manner of consumption.  Simply offering the next port speed or a new feature will not suffice, as products purchased by the customer-of-the-future will look fundamentally different from those offered today.
