Depends on the application. For an application for which there are many
DTEs for a single switch port, this might be true. But for a great many
applications, e.g. a desktop IP telephone, this is not true. The owner
must pay for the equipment at both ends of the wire. Why is there a
particular need to bias the costs toward one end of the wire or the other?
(: Yes, I understand that the switch end typically is serving a number of
wires. I'm talking about the per-port cost. :)
