High speed switched fabric refers to switching system that aims at connecting devices together with an objective to support multiple simultaneous data transfers usually implemented with a crossbar switch. It involves data transfer in the form of packets with the help of information contained in the packet header for error detection, identification, correcting, and routing.
The low number of smaller connectors, cables, and signal lines which result in simplified system integration, better system density, lower installation costs, and easier maintenance of data transfer networks are the most important factors boosting the high speed serial switch fabrics market. Furthermore, availability of variable fabric switches that serves data network demand of various end use industries is also driving this market.
Product manufacturers are continually introducing advance networking switches in order to support end user demand. In particular, the popularity of ethernet switches has increased due to increasing demand for high speed data transfer capabilities in the telecommunication industry. With obsolescence of traditional data transfer techniques, high speed serial switch fabric integration is expected to display increased market share in the coming years.
