Global Ethernet switching and routing revenues grew by 32.7% and 11% year-on-year, respectively, in the second quarter, according to IDC’s latest quarterly enterprise networks report.

IDC director Rohit Mehra said the continued adoption of Power over Ethernet and gigabit Ethernet is also being helped by the growth of voice and video over IP applications, network-attached devices, virtualization, and cloud computing.

The enterprise router market gained 8% year-over-year, but continues to be soft and off by around 25% from the record levels seen in 2007 and 2008.
