REDWOOD CITY, Calif., July 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a newly published report by Dell'Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, core router product upgrades with higher speed ports and an increase in traffic in the metro will drive the worldwide Service Provider Core Router market to over $3.4 billion by 2018.
"With continued growth in IP traffic demand, many Service Providers are coming closer to exhausting Internet backbone capacity and scalability on their aging core router platforms. With recently introduced products that meet these higher capacity needs, Service Providers are likely to perform a product upgrade cycle over the next couple of years after comprehensive testing and trials," said Alam Tamboli, Business Analyst at Dell'Oro Group. "Furthermore, the growth of traffic in metro area networks is expected to outpace that of traffic in backbone networks due to a shift in IP traffic patterns related to content delivery networks and data centers. This shift in patterns has caused many Service Providers to install core routers into their metro networks, effectively increasing the total available market to Service Provider Core Routers," added Tamboli.
The Service Provider Core Router market is a subset of the Service Provider Router market. The Service Provider Router market also includes the Service Provider Edge segment. Both segments are covered in the Dell'Oro Group Routers 5-Year Forecast Report. In addition, the Enterprise High End and Access Router markets are also analyzed in depth.
