Large enterprises find that in order to compete in the world economy, they need to provide support for complex multimedia applications. In addition, many government regulations, such as Sarbanes-Oxley, have placed a huge strain on already overtaxed computer networks.
Aging infrastructure of computer networks, caused by years of neglect due to the poor economy, has made it difficult for large corporations to meet government regulation requirements, and to use new multimedia technology. Corporations must upgrade their old networks with high-speed networks, which create significant opportunities for high-speed switch vendors.

“Sarbanes-Oxley and other government regulations create enormous data storage requirements,” notes Frost & Sullivan Strategic Analyst Shirley Hunt.
“Specialized storage area networks must be installed to handle these storage requirements. These special networks are very high-speed, directly storing files into permanent locations on servers. The network infrastructure, including the switches, must be powerful and fast in order to handle this enormous requirement.”
However, a difficult challenge for vendors trying to sell high-speed switches into Enterprise networks is that customers have a wide variety of technologies, applications, and equipment installed. It is often necessary to throw-out the old equipment, or to find ways to interoperate with it, in order to get the new equipment installed.
“More than 75 percent of Enterprise networks still use technologies that are 10 or more years old, such as Fast Ethernet,” explains Hunt. “The improving economy has allowed companies to once again invest in their network equipment infrastructure. In addition, many businesses, such as those who sell product over the Internet, and those who compete internationally, have found that it is a strategic necessity to upgrade their equipment to the highest-level technology available. These companies are willing to dump the old Fast Ethernet switches and replace them with high-speed 1-gigabit and 10-gigabit speed switches, in order to remain competitive and meet government regulations.”
