Global Data Center Ethernet Switch Market 2012-2016 Report Reveals That One of the Main Challenges in the Market Is Declining Equipment Prices

Feb 22, 2013 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/3b4jhd/global_data) has announced the addition of the "Global Data Center Ethernet Switch Market 2012-2016" report to their offering.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Data Center Ethernet Switch market to grow at a CAGR of 14.34 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing virtualization in network environments. The Global Data Center Ethernet Switch market has also been witnessing the evolution of data traffic profiles. However, the declining equipment prices could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

The key vendors dominating this market space are Cisco Systems Inc., Hewlett-Packard Co., IBM Corp., and Juniper Networks Inc.

The other vendors mentioned in the report are Alcatel-Lucent SA, Avaya Inc., Brocade Communications Systems Inc., Dell Inc. (Force 10), Enterasys Networks Inc., Extreme Networks Inc., Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., and Oracle Corp. (Xsigo Systems).

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Data Centers team said: ''Data traffic profiles have transitioned from asymmetric e-mail messages and low bandwidth client-server computing applications to large data traffic, latency sensitive and high bandwidth intensive computing applications. Currently, network latency has gained precedence over data accuracy and even 10 millisecond differences can win or lose customers. In the data centers, highly complex data traffic moves in a random order between storage, internet, servers, and intranet. Moreover, there are varieties of traditional and advanced data intensive applications including Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), storage access, emerging converged I/O, etc. This data traffic is increasing rapidly and increases exponentially if any unexpected event occurs across the globe. For instance, the data centers in financial institutions are flooded with data traffic in any major up- or downturn in the capital markets.'' According to the report, one of the main growth drivers is the increasing virtualization in network environments. Virtualization has increased deployment of multi-core and blade server platforms resulting in consolidation of storage environments. Virtual networks can be programmed, bonded to workloads, and are scalable to demand.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
