“In line with our predictions, the recovery in the data center switch market, which started in the second half of last year, continued to accelerate in 1Q21,” said Sameh Boujelbene, Senior Research Director at Dell’Oro Group. “Although this strong performance was in part due to an easy year-over-year comparison, it was more reflective of an improvement in the demand environment. Additionally, impact from supply chain challenges on revenue and pricing environment during the quarter was minimal but may become more pronounced in the remainder of the year,” added Boujelbene.

Additional highlights from the 1Q21 Ethernet Switch – Data Center Report:

Major vendors with revenue share gain in the first quarter period are Arista, H3C, and Huawei.
25 Gbps, 100 Gbps, and 400 Gbps comprised more than 60 percent of the data center switch port shipments in 1Q21 as the pandemic has accelerated the adoption of new generation speeds and the decline of legac speeds.
