Gigabit Ethernet Test Equipment: Exponential Growth in Data/Video to Boost European Market, States Frost & Sullivan PR Newswire LONDON, June 6, 2012 - Commoditisation of 1GbE prices threatens to stifle growth of market revenues, which are estimated to reach euro 154.3 million in 2015 LONDON, June 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The gigabit Ethernet (GbE) market is growing rapidly, driven by maturing technologies and business models, and increasing market awareness of both the availability of such services and their specific benefits. The hype around cloud technologies has also contributed to the growing demand for GbE. New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.testandmeasurement.frost.com), European Gigabit Ethernet Test Equipment Market, finds that the market earned revenues of €108.3 million in 2010 and estimates this to reach €154.3 million in 2015. The research covers 1GbE, 10GbE and 40/100 GbE test equipment. "Bandwidth growth is expected to be pushed by the increasing mobile and Internet bandwidth usage—which includes traffic generated by videos, gaming, and peer-to-peer applications, triple-play applications, inter-data centre traffic, and traffic between data centres and enterprises," notes Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Prathima Bommakanti. "The evolution of access network to gigabit Ethernet is expected to drive the growth of 10Gb Ethernet in the metro network.

/PRNewswire/ -- The gigabit Ethernet (GbE) market is
growing rapidly, driven by maturing technologies and business models, and
increasing market awareness of both the availability of such services and their
specific benefits. The hype around cloud technologies has also contributed to
the growing demand for GbE.
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan
(http://www.testandmeasurement.frost.com),
European Gigabit Ethernet
Test Equipment Market
, finds that the market earned revenues of €108.3
million in 2010 and estimates this to reach €154.3 million in 2015. The research
covers 1GbE, 10GbE and 40/100 GbE test equipment.
"Bandwidth growth is expected to be pushed by the increasing mobile and
Internet bandwidth usage—which includes traffic generated by videos, gaming,
and peer-to-peer applications, triple-play applications, inter-data centre traffic,
and traffic between data centres and enterprises," notes Frost & Sullivan
Industry Analyst Prathima Bommakanti. "The evolution of access network to
gigabit Ethernet is expected to drive the growth of 10Gb Ethernet in the metro
network."
The market is being driven by converged data and applications such as data,
voice, audio, gaming, and social networking sites. According to the IEEE
P802.3ba specification, 100G and 40G are well aligned with the projected need
for more network bandwidth because of multiplay deployments
"A positive trend for the market will be the increased need for monitoring and
security that will impel the need for network analysis and hence gigabit
Ethernet test equipment," adds Bommakanti.
Despite being far from a mature market, commoditisation of 1GbE prices
continues to erode overall revenue per port. This will prove a significant
challenge to market prospects.
"Time-to-market will emerge a critical aspect of product differentiation, as over
time the competition starts offering comparable features," adds Bommakanti.
"As products get standardised, they enable interoperability while simultaneously
creating a competitive environment."
This is triggering the need for high investments in R&D. Vendors are continuing
to invest in R&D to stay ahead of their competitors, even while keeping track of
service providers' infrastructure upgrades and new service enablement.
Factors like price, geographic coverage, customer service and multi-functional
product capabilities will also play an important role in ensuring competitive
success.
