Over the next few years, data center interconnect (DCI) traffic is expected to increase threefold to 10.4 zettabytes per year, 85% of which is likely to come from the cloud. New trends are likely to emerge including encryption as a check-box item for hosted services, the need for open architecture and the trend towards disaggregated solutions.
