About Carrier Ethernet Access Devices
Carrier Ethernet allows telecommunications services providers to offer Ethernet services as carriers move toward packet-based and IP networks. These services include E-Line, E-LAN, and E-Tree. Carrier Ethernet switches are deployed in the aggregation, access, and edge layers of carrier networks to offer reliable higher bandwidth and distinguished services to business, residential, and mobile users.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global carrier ethernet access devices market to grow at a CAGR of 3.10% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global carrier ethernet access devices market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers ethernet access devices for carriers as end-users.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Carrier Ethernet Access Devices Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global carrier ethernet access devices market: Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, Arista Networks, Brocade Communications Systems, Cisco Systems, Dell, HPE, and Juniper Networks.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Aerohive, Allied Telesis, Advantech B+B SmartWorx, Ericsson, Huawei, Mellanox Technologies, Moxa, NEC, NETGEAR, Oracle, PLANET Technology, Siemens, Telco Systems, Westermo (Beijer Electronics Group), and ZTE.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is decrease in price of Ethernet access devices. The global carrier Ethernet access devices market is highly price-sensitive. The market demand has prompted many vendors to reduce prices to remain competitive in the market. Moreover, the cost is also one of the main reasons that end-users change vendors.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing adoption of Ethernet access devices in telecom networks backhaul. The global telecom industry is witnessing a rapid adoption of fiber cables as the first-choice connection or backhaul. This is because of the increasing requirement of high-speed packet transfer in the backhaul. In addition, more number of telecom operators are deploying advanced telecom technologies such as 3G and long-term evolution (LTE). These technologies enable the telecom operators to offer high-speed broadband services.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is complex installation and maintenance process. The installation and commissioning process of carrier Ethernet access devices are complex in nature, because of the requirement of a number of small and complex processes. Telecommunication network commissioning takes months to set up, and depending upon the cellular capacity, the time line for project rollout can again increase or decrease. A commissioning process for a state can take up to one year.
