Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its latest Ethernet Access Devices market share, market size, and forecasts report, which tracks revenue, units, and ports for copper and fiber Ethernet access devices (EADs).
“A number of major operators around the world—Deutsche Telekom, BT, and AT&T, among others—are starting to make end-of-life plans for customer TDM connections such as T1s and E1s, and Ethernet services are the main replacement technology for TDM,” notes Michael Howard, principal analyst for carrier networks and co-founder of Infonetics Research.
Continues Howard: “This bodes well for EFM (Ethernet in the first mile) bonded copper and fiber Ethernet access devices (EADs), on which we expect operators to spend a cumulative $5.6 billion worldwide over the five years from 2014 to 2018.”
EAD MARKET HIGHLIGHTS
- Worldwide Ethernet access device (EAD) revenue took an 11% jump in 2013 over 2012, to $958 million, as economic conditions eased in Europe and picked up in Japan
- Spending on copper EADs totaled $283 million in 2013, illustrating copper’s important but limited role for Ethernet services
- Now in steady decline, Ethernet over TDM (EoTDM) bonded circuits remain a niche market, providing an inexpensive way to combine several E1s or T1s in logical bonding
- Actelis, Adva, Ciena, Overture, and RAD (in alphabetical order) lead the EAD market (all 5 companies topped the leaderboard in both 2012 and 2013)

We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...
