Japan Enterprise Networks Forecast, 2017−2021: Enterprise Router/Ethernet Switch/WLAN Market
This IDC study is a translation of the Japanese document IDC #JPJ41777217. It provides the market forecast (2016–2021) for the Japan enterprise network communications market that comprises Ethernet switches, routers, and wireless LAN equipment; and analyzes the prospects for each segment. The growth potential of the market varies depending upon the product field and area. Although there is scope for large growth in new implementation areas such as datacenter Ethernet switches and enterprise wireless LAN, the enterprise router market is a much more mature market. From maturity standpoint, the demand for modular switches in enterprise LAN is declining. In this scenario, Kenichi Kusano, group manager, Communications, IDC Japan, says, "Vendors should take note of the fact that modular switchless enterprise network design will become the mainstream in the future. To achieve this, it is necessary to focus on refining the modular switchless enterprise network architecture. Key lies in implementing a fixed managed switch that can provide high reliability and scalability with ease through stacking, advancing ring technology, and expanding operational management system."
