“The campus switching market is entering an era of multi-year growth driven by new requirements of the digital transformation and an overdue refresh cycle,” said Sameh Boujelbene, Senior Director at Dell’Oro Group. “As enterprise customers are upgrading their networks, they are considering new feature sets as well as higher speeds, such as 2.5/5.0 Gbps. We expect 2.5/5.0 Gbps to ramp significantly over our forecast horizon, driven mostly by Wi-Fi 6 Access point connectivity and high-end applications. In the meantime, while we predict 1 Gbps to start a long-term decline in 2021, this speed is forecast to still drive two-third of the campus switch port shipments in 2023,” added Boujelbene.
