Since the start of 2016, there have been numerous 32G Fibre Channel (FC switch and FC host bus adapter) announcements. The introduction of Gen 6 (32G FC) helps stabilize the overall declining FC SAN market, which is still experiencing growth in some emerging markets but not enough to offset declines elsewhere. FC HBA and FC switch revenues each decreased in 1Q16 by 3% YoY, and we expect continued decline through CY20 as workloads shift to off-premises cloud service provider (CSP) data centers (DCs) and server connectivity transitions from FC to IP for direct server to top-of-rack switch connections.
