The emergence of cloud computing has acted as a catalyst for driving even faster adoption of new network technology and higher bandwidth. Projections indicate that by 2018 there will be 2.7 networked devices per person. Data centers need to move quickly to manage these ever-increasing bandwidth demands. While switch-to-switch connections of 40G and 100G accounted for 8 percent of data center infrastructure speeds in 2014, those combined speeds are expected to rise 26 percent by the end of 2016, according to research organization BSRIA.
