Bishop & Associates Inc. has just released a new detailed report that covers multi-gigabit data communications connectors and cable assemblies. This market research report contains in-depth analysis of the market for these products, along with profiles of some of the top vendors in the different networking segments: Ethernet, Fiber Channel, and InfiniBand. It features key market trends, competitive landscape along with profiles of some of the top vendors in the different networking segments as well as elaborate five-year forecasts.
Ethernet remains the most pervasive networking technology within the datacom market, with Fiber Channel and InfiniBand lagging behind and coming second and third respectively. By 2012, InfiniBand is expected to surpass Fiber Channel due to its increasing penetration into the high performance computing sector as well as its adoption into low-latency applications like financial trading. Still, by 2015, it will only be about one-fifth that of the Ethernet market.
The five-year forecasts include many permutations such as networking segment and data rate, region of the world, product, media type, structured cabling and interconnect. Within the datacom market, Ethernet remains the most pervasive networking technology, with Fiber Channel second and InfiniBand third. It is anticipated that by as soon as 2012, InfiniBand will surpass Fiber Channel due to its increasing penetration into the high performance computing sector, and because of its adoption into low-latency applications such as financial trading. Still, by 2015, it will only be about one-fifth that of the Ethernet market.
