Overall Wireless LAN market revenues are forecast to exceed $11 billion in 2017, nearly 50 percent greater than 2012 revenues, according to Dell'Oro Group.
Emerging trends expected to drive this growth include deployment of Service Provider WiFi (SP WiFi), the 802.11ac upgrade cycle, cloud-managed WLAN, consumer video over WiFi, and the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend. In addition, there has been a shift in enterprise application development towards mobile devices.
"Today's enterprise applications are now built for mobile devices, enabling workers to be nomadic. The emphasis on mobile devices places new demands on the corporate wireless infrastructure. It also forces companies to maintain connections to employees while they traverse to cellular networks, and drives the need to apply consistent access rules for both Ethernet and wireless access systems," said Chris DePuy , Vice President at Dell'Oro Group.
"We see continued innovation at the edge of enterprise networks that will drive continued investment in both wireless equipment as well as access management infrastructure." he added.
