The new report recognizes the following companies as the key players in Global Fiber Channel over Ethernet Market: Brocade Communications Systems Inc., Cisco Systems Inc., Emulex Corp., Qlogic Corp., Arista Networks Inc., Chelsio Communications Inc., CSP Inc., Intel Corp., LSI Corp., Mellanox Technologies Ltd.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from the new reports team said: “Cloud computing and cloud-based applications are being adopted increasingly by companies across the world to meet their computing demands. This increase in adoption is creating a need for high-speed data transmission mediums to be incorporated as core communication networks. Cloud computing service providers are looking for solutions that have lower jitter and increased efficiency compared to fiber networks. The modern data centers being established are equipped with high-speed computing equipment and high-speed data transmitting equipment, creating a need for FCoE solutions. Cloud computing also requires multiple data type transmissions to be supported on a single transmission medium, another factor that is leading to a higher demand for FCoE solutions.”
According to the report, with companies and communication service providers keen to adopt FCoE solutions and equipment to meet their data transmission requirements, the Global FCoE market is witnessing an impressive growth rate across the globe. The need for high bandwidth support for companies is one of the major drivers of the market. The traditional fiber channel networks allow transition at smaller levels whereas FCoE solutions can be scaled at large bandwidth levels, a feature that has greater acceptability among companies.
Further, the report states that the rapid evolution of FCoE technology, which hinders the adoption process by companies and communication service providers, is one of the major challenges; companies are looking for tested solutions to incorporate into their computing infrastructure.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
