Infonetics: China drives 2Q12 IP router/switch sales
A new report from Infonetics Research asserts the global service provider router and switch market grew 4% to $3.5 million in the second quarter of 2012. The niche, which includes Carrier Ethernet switches and IP edge and core routers, was a spike in China from a decline, according to the new 2012 (2Q12) Service Provider Routers and Switches report.In fact, the space was down 9% year on year."A nearly 50% increase in revenue in China propped up the global service provider router and switch market in the 2nd quarter," according to Michael Howard, Infonetics Research's co-founder and principal analyst for carrier networks. "China was the differentiating factor between a positive worldwide quarter and one that otherwise would have been down."Continuing caution among service providers in North America and Europe put a damper on IP router/switch sales in the quarter. Latin America joined China in bucking the conservative bent. It was the only major world region to improve versus the second quarter of 2011, jumping 57% in 2Q12.Current market conditions favor China-based suppliers, it seems. "While Cisco has long led the global IP edge and core router market by very comfortable margins (and whose share is steady from this time last year), Alcatel-Lucent, Juniper, and Huawei have been fighting it out every quarter for the past year-and-a-half for the next three leadership positions,” Howard explains. “The race tightened considerably in the first half of 2012, with Huawei taking the #2 spot in the second quarter."Meanwhile, ZTE also gained strongly in sales of Carrier Ethernet switches in 2Q12. This was particularly true in China, where service providers are rolling out Carrier Ethernet switches as part of major mobile backhaul deployments.Infonetics' quarterly Service Provider Routers and Switches report provides worldwide and regional market share, market size, forecasts, and analysis for IP edge routers, IP core routers, and Carrier Ethernet switches.
Cable & Wireless Seychelles completes fiber to the curb deployment
Cable & Wireless Seychelles, a Cable & Wireless Communications (CWC) company, says it has completed deployment of a nationwide fiber-to-the-curb (FTTC) network. The carrier will support services over the FTTC network using the country’s first subsea cable network.The FTTC roll out lasted two years, the company says. It will play off of the Seychelles East Africa System (SEAS) undersea cable system that recently entered commercial service. The 2,000-km SEAS connects Beau Vallon, a bay on the main island of Mahé, with Dar Es Salaam in Tanzania. Seychelles international communications previously relied on satellite links. Alcatel-Lucent supplied hardware and services for the deployment (see "Submarine cable network to link Seychelles and Tanzania").Cable & Wireless Seychelles expects the new infrastructure to significantly improve broadband communications within the Indian Ocean archipelago. Internet services currently reach only about 30% of households and businesses, the carrier estimates.“Our country-wide fiber broadband network, supported by the new SEAS cable, represents a momentous step forward for telecoms in the Seychelles,” said Charles Hammond, CEO of Cable & Wireless Seychelles, in a press release. “It will support the rapid growth in demand for fixed and mobile broadband usage across the islands as well as providing better telecom connections for businesses both locally and internationally.”
New IEEE 802.3 group seeks consensus for next-generation Ethernet
The IEEE says it has formed the IEEE 802.3 Industry Connections Higher Speed Ethernet Consensus group, which it hopes will create a consensus that will drive standardization efforts in the future. To get the conversation started, the IEEE has released a report that predicts future Ethernet networks capacity demands.Ethernet specifications currently top out at 100-Gigabit Ethernet. There has been significant discussion within user and technology developer circles whether the next step in capacity progression should be 400 Gbps or 1 Tbps.The findings of the IEEE 802.3 Ethernet Bandwidth Assessment report should add urgency to the discussion. The report suggest that, based on current trends, networks will need to support 1 Tbps by 2015 and 10 Tbps by 2020.“The IEEE 802.3 Ethernet Bandwidth Assessment report offers a simple but meaningful explanation of the underlying forces that are driving the never-ending, global bandwidth explosion,” said Brad Smith, senior vice president and industry analyst with market research firm “The data from smartphones, tablets, PCs, and another 16 billion devices forecasted to be on the Internet by 2020 all flow through the wireless, CATV, and wired access points; through the metro, long-haul, and undersea networks; to a data-center server anywhere in the world. Add to this the dramatic increase in the use of live and streaming video, and the data traffic calculations become simply astronomical.“The only way all these different devices are going to communicate with each other is via industry standards set by groups such as the IEEE,” Smith continues. “The ability to support this exponential rise in traffic will continue to pressure the entire Ethernet eco-system to continue to drive cost per bit downward, so that manufacturers, service providers and users can be offered cost-effective, standards-based solutions, products and services.”“We continue to seek to streamline the early stages of work of potential future IEEE 802.3 Ethernet wireline standards-development activities,” said John D’Ambrosia, chair of the IEEE 802.3 Ethernet Bandwidth Assessment Ad Hoc and IEEE 802.3 Industry Connections Higher Speed Ethernet Consensus group and chief Ethernet evangelist, CTO office, Dell. “The information gathered by the Bandwidth Assessment Ad Hoc demonstrates the ongoing, exponential bandwidth growth that is happening in varying application spaces on a global nature. The launch of the IEEE 802.3 Industry Connections Higher Speed Ethernet Consensus group will facilitate an open forum to explore the start beyond 100-Gbps Ethernet.”The IEEE 802.3 Industry Connections Higher Speed Ethernet Consensus group will meet at the IEEE 802.3 Interim Meeting, scheduled for September 24-28, 2012 in Geneva.
