According to TheInfoPro's Wave 2 Networking Study, 26 percent of enterprises interviewed have already adopted the use of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) in their core networks. The study also reveals that this figure is set to grow by over 30 percent by the end of 2007, placing it at the top of the TheInfoPro's Technology Heat Index of Data Network Infrastructure technologies. The findings are derived from 126 hour-long interviews with TheInfoPro's TIPNetwork of pre-screened networking professionals from Fortune 1000 and Mid-sized enterprises that provide expert commentary for TIP's Networking Study.
TheInfoPro's Wave 2 Networking Study details technology adoption trends and timeframes, management techniques and trends, vendor performance data as well as management strategies for the networking sector.
"Enterprises have been gaining the benefits of data center consolidation and server virtualization for some time now. In many cases, their core network becomes an impediment to the overall performance of the enterprise business applications," stated Bill Trussell, managing director of TheInfoPro's Networking Sector. "With so many organizations depending heavily on their core applications, achieving peak performance to those infrastructure elements becomes paramount," Trussell indicated.
"Some enterprises have found upgrading their core networking to be relatively straightforward using their incumbent networking supplier while others are taking the opportunity to evaluate solutions offered by other technology companies," added Trussell.
Enterprise networking and companies including Nortel, Cisco, 3Com, HP, Enterasys, Juniper Networks, Extreme Networks, F5 Networks, Foundry, and Force10 Networks stand to gain from this growing trend. Additional networking companies covered in the Wave 2 Networking Study include AT&T, Aruba, AudioCodes, Avaya, Aventail, BellSouth, Check Point, Citrix, Dell, Fortinet, IBM, Inter-Tel, INX, Level 3, Motorola, Packeteer, Qwest, Riverbed, ShoreTel, Skype, SonicWALL, Time Warner, and Verizon.
