Portola Valley, California – Sept. 17, 2018 – A newly released market report from the 650 Group indicates that 100 Gbps revenue has exceed 10 Gbps revenue for the first time, as Data Center Ethernet Switching hit an all-time record high in 2Q18.  
“The Data Center Ethernet Switch market hit a significant milestone in the market and 10 Gbps is no longer the dominant speed in terms of revenue,” said Alan Weckel, Founder and Technology Analyst at 650 Group.  “This is quite an accomplishment, something 40 Gbps could never achieve and is primarily driven by strong demand of Cloud providers throughout the world. DC Equipment CAPEX is growing at such a rapid pace that future records breaking when 400 Gbps starts shipping are likely.” 
The report also indicates strong 25 Gbps native and 100 Gbps port shipments from Arista, Cisco, Dell, H3C, Huawei, and Juniper.
Additionally, 650 Group published its Merchant Silicon report that indicates record 25 Gbps SERDES shipments with the technology representing over half the lanes in Data Center switching for the first time.  The start of shipments based on 50 Gbps SERDES solutions also occurred during the quarter.  Quarterly reports on this subject include market share for Broadcom, the market leader, as well as emerging vendors, including Barefoot, Innovium, Marvell, Mellanox, and Nephos.
