Research and Markets: Global Carrier Ethernet Switch and Router Market 2012-2016

DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Carrier Ethernet Switch and Router Market 2012-2016" report to their offering.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Carrier Ethernet Switch and Router market to grow at a CAGR of 11.26 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the reduction in capital and operational expenses. The Global Carrier Ethernet Switch and Router market in India has also been witnessing increased adoption of carrier Ethernet outside metro cities. However, the domination of DSL technology could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

The key vendors dominating this market space are Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco (News - Alert) Systems Inc., Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., Juniper Networks Inc., and ZTE Corp.

The other vendors mentioned in the report are HP Corp., D-Link (News - Alert) Corp., Avaya Inc., Brocade Communications Systems Inc., Adtran Inc., Hitachi Ltd., and Nortel Networks Corp.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Networking team said: ''The major trend witnessed by the Global Carrier Ethernet Switch and Router market is the expansion of carrier Ethernet networks outside metros. Ethernet services are currently offered outside metros in several countries. The increase in the adoption of carrier Ethernet networks outside metros is leading to increased demand for demarcation between wholesale and service provider networks, leading to improved quality of service (QoS) and service performance visibility.''

According to the report, the key factor driving the growth of the market is the need to reduce capital and operational expenses. Ethernet technology is popular among network technicians as it is frequently used to interconnect LANs in enterprises. Hence, professionals are comfortable working with the Ethernet technology, and companies do not need to invest heavily in training them.
