VOIP ports to grow at 15% CAGR

Infonetics predicts that VOIP ports will enjoy a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15% over the next five years in the high-end enterprise router category, defined as modular platforms switching OC-3 (optical carrier level 3, equal to 155.52Mbps) to OC-12 (three OC-3) speeds. In the midrange category—handling bandwidth between T-3 and OC-3 speeds—it sees a 22%, five-year CAGR. Overall router ports, in contrast, are expected to grow by only 10% over that period.
