According to market research firm Dell’Oro Group’s latest forecast shows that cloud data center will be in the next round of big jumps in the network play an important role to promote the 100Gbps transition to 400Gbps, and have a positive impact on -2021 Ethernet switch market will reach $14 billion for the entire Ethernet switch and data center market.
In addition to Google, all other major cloud providers are demanding 400 Gbps. Dell’Oro is expected to become the next major network speed target as the 400 Gbps fiber speed becomes a reality.
Dell’Oro said that during the forecast period, switch hardware and switch operating system decoupling will significantly exceed the white box system”.
Accelerate the Development of DCI
One of the major trends in the development of data center areas is the data center interconnect (DCI). DCI attracts a large number of traditional ILEC and competitive providers, and provides access to multiple service providers, increasing the availability of data center exchange deployment scenarios.
By providing a variety of connectivity options, data center providers can provide direct access to their servers, which is critical for use in hardware and / or software interrupts or maintenance.
A number of service providers, such as Windstream, which have already sold their data center infrastructure, are expanding their fiber optics to critical data centers. For example, Windstream is on the west coast to build an ultra long distance (ULH) network, and has a connection in the Miami market, and thus the flow of traffic in Latin America.
