A recovery is under way in networking. Enterprise Networking Planet reports that both enterprise and carrier spending on Ethernet networking gear is picking up.

Enterprises and telcos gobbled up switches and routers during first quarter, according to new industry analyst research -- a development that points to reinvigorated interest among IT buyers in networking gear.

According to IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Enterprise Networks Tracker report for the first quarter of 2010, Ethernet switch revenues ballooned by 35.3 percent on a year-over-year basis. Growth in switch revenues came in part from increased demand for 10-gigabit Ethernet, which hit a new milestone in the first quarter of 2010.

"The 1Q10 results include a remarkable 111.2 percent year-over-year increase in 10GbE switch revenue, and for the first time, 10GbE revenue surpassed the $1 billion mark, reaching $1.15 billion for the quarter," said Petr Jirovský, a senior research analyst at IDC, said in a statement. "The 10Gb adoption was driven by data center, cloud, and campus buildouts."
