Dell'Oro Reports Strong Sales

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- According to a recently published report by DellOro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, high-end Fibre Channel switch sales grew more than 15 percent during the fourth quarter of 2006. Storage equipment resellers quickly snapped up high-end switches as manufacturers dropped prices faster than the normal rate.

“Fibre Channel switch prices are very attractive and are likely to become even more so by the end of 2007,” said Tam Dell’Oro, President and Founder of Dell’Oro Group. “Brocade will likely increase cost efficiencies now that it dominates the market shipment volumes, and Cisco might be able to leverage its purchasing power from its huge presence in the Ethernet switch market,” added Dell’Oro.
