200 Gbps and 400 Gbps to have Material Impact on Ethernet Switch Market in 2018, According to 650 Group 800 Gbps to Ramp Early Next Decade

Portola Valley, California – January 16, 2017 – A newly released market leading report by 650 Group indicates that 200 Gbps, 400 Gbps, and 800 Gbps will all ship in the next five years resulting in robust growth for the Ethernet Switch Market. 

“The first wave of 200 Gbps and 400 Gbps will hit the market in early 2018 as the Ethernet Switch market expands the number of port speeds just three years since the last major set of technology advances. Both 200 Gbps and 400 Gbps will emerge off of 50 Gbps SERDES technology announced in 2017,” said Alan Weckel, Founder and Technology Analyst at 650 Group.  “The rapid pace of innovation is led not only by impressive technology improvements, but by Software Defined Networks (SDN) which is enabling the Cloud to better utilize the compute and networking resources at their disposal.”

650 Group authored several forecast reports on the subject of 200 Gbps and 400 Gbps as well as 25 and 50 Gbps SERDES speeds.
