Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report Global Ethernet Switch and Routers Market 2016-2020 Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Ethernet Switch and Routers Market: Arista Network, Brocade Communications, Cisco, Dell, HP, Huawei and Juniper Network Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Aerohive, Allied Telesis, Avaya, B+B Smart Worx, Black Box Network, Curtiss-Wright, Ericsson, Mellanox Technologies, Moxa, NEC, NETGEAR, Oracle, PLANET Technology, Siemens, Telco Systems, Westermo (Beijer Electronics Group), and ZTE. Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavios team said: SDN is an evolving network architecture in which the network control and forwarding plane are decoupled. They can also be programmed directly. This transfer of control from specific network devices, such as Ethernet switches and routers, to manageable computing devices simplifies the management of network infrastructure in enterprise data center environments. SDN provides control to the enterprises and carriers on the complete network through a single logical point, thereby simplifying the network design and operation. According to the report, with the increase in penetration of smart devices there was a tremendous increase in the amount of mobile data traffic from 2010 to 2014, and this is expected to increase exponentially during the forecast period. This growth in mobile data traffic is driven by an increase in the number of data capable devices and high-bandwidth applications. Further, the report states that one of the major challenges faced by Ethernet networks is the interoperability issues due to growing network complexity.
