Short Take: Networking gear soon worth $50 billion, study says

The global networking equipment industry will reach a value of $50 billion by the end of the year, according to a new study released today by market research firm Cahners In-Stat Group. Cahners said first-quarter seasonal market growth slowed to just 3 percent, though the industry still was worth $10.8 billion and is poised for a big year in 2000. North America dominated the network hardware sales market with 53 percent share. Digital modems, asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) switches and voice-over-Internet Protocol gear accounted for much of the growth.
