Report: 40/100 GigE Adoption Will Grow

GLEN ALLEN, Va. -- According to a new report from CIR, an industry analyst firm based here, the market for 40/100 Gigabit Ethernet products will begin to take off in 2010. The latest CIR projections, which are provided in detail in the report titled, "40/100 GigE Markets: 2009-2013," show that revenues from 40/100 GigE transceivers will reach $ 482 million in revenues by 2013. Additional details about the new report can be found at Members of the press can request an executive summary of the report.

Findings from the report:

  • CIR believes that the economic downturn will not delay early adopters of 40/100 GigE as companies such as Google and Amazon have a "desperate need" for 100G connections today. And, although the current economic situation is having an impact on carrier network upgrades, scaling carrier networks to 100 Gbps will now only be accomplished using a 40/100-Gbps variant.
