Networking opportunity
For both homes and businesses, the ability to network IT equipment is growing ever more essential.
Matt Grainger examines the goods that make up this ever-important sector…
“We expect mobile
infrastructure to
account for 30 to 50
per cent of the service
provider edge router
market growth over the
next five years.”
Shin Umeda,
Dell’Oro Group

CONNECTIVITY is now one of the
most important aspects of any
computing device, as internet access
and networking capabilities are
increasingly regarded as crucial
features by consumers.
One of the key drivers of the market
has been the explosion in smartphone
ownership, with networking and
telecommunications analyst the
Dell’Oro Group predicting that the
router market will grow by over 60 per
cent to generate $9 billion per annum.
“There is no doubt that mobile
devices are going to drive the next wave
of internet traffic growth, and we
expect mobile infrastructure to account
for 30 per cent to 50 per cent of the
service provider edge router market
growth over the next five years,” says
Shin Umeda, vice president of routers
research at Dell’Oro Group.
“We are currently seeing the surge in
North America, but we expect the
same type of uptick to occur in
Europe and Asia over the coming
years,” he concludes.
In the meantime, items like the
lowly router have become must-have
products, as well as newer innovations
such as power line adapters, which
make the job of creating a
home network so much easier.
