Ethernet adoption soaring - Ethernet Cables

Take-up of Ethernet services are soaring in the US, as companies are increasingly attracted to Ethernet cables' cost effectiveness, high-bandwidth scalability, ease of implementation and overall flexibility, according to new research.

A study by International Data Corporation (IDC) suggests US Ethernet revenue will increase from $5.2 billion in 2012 to $9.2 billion in 2016.

The firm said a need for high bandwidth applications such as data centre connectivity, disaster recovery/business continuity and data storage replication are the three primary applications driving adoption of Ethernet over the Pond.

Nav Chander, IDC research manager, said companies are increasingly harnessing 100Mb, gigabit, and even 10 gigabit Ethernet services for domestic and international WAN networking.

"We are seeing a lot more medium-size US enterprises adopt Ethernet with more fibre availability, more service competition, and faster time-to-service compared to alternatives," he explained.

Gartner's research added that Ethernet services are also proving attractive because they can be less expensive than private line or packet services, and lower equipment costs also contribute to overall cost effectiveness.
