10 Gbps and 40 Gbps showing growth in declining network markets

Redwood City (CA) – A report published by Dell’Oro, a research market firm for the networking and telecommunication industries, says that 2009 forecasts show growth for 10 Gbps and 40 Gbps extreme high-speed networking technologies despite broader networking market declines.

Enterprise service providers will see annual declines of close to 10% in 2009 on the whole, with high-speed networking segments seeing an undisclosed amount of growth.

Throughout 2008, Cisco has held top market share positions in both 10 Gbps switching and 40 Gbps routing shipments, while Nokia Siemens was tops in 40 Gbps Optical DWDM long-haul terrestrial shipments. Broadcom was number one in 10 Gbps silicon controllers as deployed in servers.
