This market research report presents a detailed analysis of the key vendors in this market, including Arista Networks, Brocade Communications, Cisco, Juniper Networks, HPE, and Dell. It also provides a comprehensive analysis of the market by infrastructure (Ethernet switches, routers, storage networking, and other networking equipment), port shipment (1GbE, 10GbE, 40GbE, and 100GbE), and geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).
Overview of the global data center network infrastructure market
During the forecast period, the global market for data center network infrastructure will be affected by factors like the increasing virtualization of network infrastructure and will post a CAGR of almost 5% by 2020. Network virtualization is widely adopted by enterprises to enhance agility, improve efficiency and reduce cost. In network virtualization, network resources such as switches, routers, and other network resources such as WAN optimization can be managed as logical resources and offers scalability, improved security, availability, and aids in better management. In recent years, the global market has witnessed an increase in virtualized networking environments. Virtual networks can be programmed, bonded to workloads, and are scalable to demand.
By 2020, the global market for data center network infrastructure will be dominated by the Americas owing to the increasing spend on data centers by companies in the US. Most of the data centers in operation in the US are owned by global CSPs, colocation and managed hosting services vendors, and telecommunication organizations. The high rate of data center construction in the US will result in the data centers becoming software-defined and NFV-enabled facilities, which, in turn, will lead to a higher revenue generation through high-performance network infrastructure adoption.
Competitive landscape and key vendors
This market is highly competitive and is dominated by large multinational conglomerates like Cisco. The growing adoption of network infrastructure that provides higher data transfer rates at cheaper costs will bring more revenues to the market. However, to gain more market shares, companies have started offering Open Networking switching solutions to increase their revenue in the market.

Segmentation by infrastructure and analysis of the data center network infrastructure market
According to this market research report, the routers segment will experience the fastest growth during the estimated period. Much of this market segment’s growth can be attributed to the availability of router solutions that are highly suitable for various environments. Most data centers require routers that are robust in nature to handle heavy data traffic. The security of the routers also plays a vital role in their adoption along with software platforms that enable enhanced security for the routed data traffic.
Segmentation by port shipment and analysis of the data center network infrastructure market
During 2015, the 10GbE port segment accounted for more ports compared to 1GbE. The shipment of 1GbE ports is decreasing rapidly as most of the new data center being constructed use 10GbE switch ports in the ToR switches. Furthermore, since white-box switches saw a greater adoption among data center operators in 2015, vendors such as HP and Dell have been compelled to introduce Open Networking switches to compete with white-box switches in the market.
