Global Cross Point Switch Market: Introduction

A cross point switch is a collection of switches arranged in matrix form which has multiple input and output lines. These lines form crossed pattern by interconnection of multiple lines to establish a cross point switch at each intersection. In cross point matrix, each cross point act as a switch, when switch is closed it connects one of the input to one of the output. Cross point switches are used in applications that require high computing power such as complex cloud based application. Cross point switches are categorized into two types: analog cross point switch and digital cross point switch in which digital cross point switch is considered as high speed packet switch. Digital cross point switch is used in network systems for transferring digital information at high speed whereas, analog cross point switches are used in wide-band routers and switches, medical imaging equipment, and video test equipment. Cross point switches are used in various end-use industries such as consumer electronics, automotive, and healthcare.

Global Cross Point Switch Market: Dynamics

Growing Demand of Cross Point Switch for High Speed Networking Applications

The demand of cross point switch for high speed applications such as transfer of digital information and audio information has increased in past few years. Cross point switches play vital role to transfer quality video data or audio data over the internet, as cross point switches are increasingly used by internet service providers at storage area networks, telecom central offices, and data centers, owing to its capability to transfer N number of input signal to M number of output with the help of matrix type configuration. Complex data transferring applications consist of large number of protocol and as cross point switches are already equipped with few protocols that helps cross point switch to perform complex data transferring applications at high speed. Moreover, growing adoption of high definition television is boosting the demand of cross point switch as non-blocking cross point switches are used in 4K and 8K ultra high definition television to display video content. As a result of above mentioned benefits offered by cross point switch for high speed networking application, the cross point switch market is anticipated to boost during the forecast period.
