Data centre network equipment revenue up 13% to USD 13.7 bln in 2017

Monday 26 March 2018 | 17:49 CET | News
Data centre network equipment revenue, including data centre Ethernet switches, application delivery controllers (ADCs) and software-defined enterprise WAN (SD-WAN), rose 13 percent year-on-year to USD 13.7 billion in 2017, according to a research by IHS. In the short term, investment in physical infrastructure is still driving data centre network equipment revenue growth. However, in 2018 and 2019 the effect of server virtualisation will slow the market, with fewer but higher capacity servers reducing the need for data centre Ethernet switch ports, along with the move to virtual ADCs.
