VDC Forcasts Power over Ethernet Midspan Solutions to Grow by 64%

8/16/2004 - According to a recently completed report by Venture Development Corporation, "Power Over Ethernet: A Global Market Demand Analysis," the worldwide market for Power over Ethernet midspan solutions is forecast to steadily rise, doubling the number of PoE-enabled ports shipped each year between 2003 to 2007.

VDC projects this for midspans' future role in business, "Our latest research forecasts the compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for midspans to be an impressive 64% between 2003 and 2007. However, we also estimate that per port revenue will decline by more than 50%, falling from approximately $60 per port to under $25 per port by 2007."

In the interim, midspan products will continue to achieve high adoption rates in the small business sector. This adoption will be driven primarily by the fact that these products allow companies to reap the benefits of Power over Ethernet without having to replace legacy systems.
