Dell'Oro Group Reports on Transition of Router Market
Feb 08, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
According to a newly published report by Dell'Oro Group, a source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, the Service Provider Router market will face a lower growth rate in the next five years as compared to past periods of market expansion.
The report showed that Service Providers are expected to reduce their router investments in the coming years as network traffic growth slows, equipment prices shrink, and networks are more efficiently provisioned.
"In the recent past, it was common for the Service Provider Router market to grow annually by 20 percent or more as network operators allocated larger portions of their capital expenditures to routers to support Internet traffic growth. In stark contrast, we forecast annual market growth to remain below ten percent from 2012-2017," said Shin Umeda, Vice President at Dell'Oro Group. "Service Providers will need to take advantage of new products and network architectures, and improve operating processes to make their networks more efficient and obtain the most return on their investment," added Umeda.
The Service Provider Router market is further broken down into the Service Provider Core and Edge segments in the Routers 5-Year Forecast Report. In addition to this, the Enterprise High End and Access markets are also analyzed in depth.
The Dell'Oro Group Routers 5-Year Forecast Report provides a complete overview of the Routers industry with tables covering Service Provider and Enterprise Router markets for historical and future time periods. The report includes qualitative analysis and detailed statistics on revenue, average selling prices and unit and port shipments.
