Prachi Nema , Matthias Machowinski | April 17, 2018
Worldwide revenue for collaborative meeting services (video and web conferencing) grew 10 percent in 2017, totaling $2.5 billion. Growth was driven by the need for better communication tools to bridge geographic divides between employees, partners and customers; the continuing adoption of unified communications; and the shift from in-house infrastructure deployments to a cloud delivery model.

In past years, colocation providers would cite space as the primary limiting factor in a data center. However, in recent years that primary limitation has changed to power. More efficient data center power distribution designs are becoming an even more critical element of a data center build or refresh. To support this renewed and growing interest in data center power distribution products, IHS Markit will complete the third edition of their report on this market.
