REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – September 6, 2016 – According to a recently published report from Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, the Enterprise-class plus Outdoor Wireless LAN (WLAN) market grew nearly 10 percent year-over-year in 2Q16, as rapid growth in the Asia-Pacific region drove much of the market growth. Ubiquiti Networks and Aerohive Networks both jumped up in vendor rank.

“Following the consolidation in the industry over the last year, we saw two vendors enter the top five ranks of the Enterprise-class plus Outdoor WLAN market. Ubiquiti jumped to the fourth place, up from seventh in the year-ago quarter, on the strength of new 802.11ac products. Aerohive jumped to fifth place, up from eight in the year-ago quarter, due to new products and expansion into new verticals,” said Chris DePuy, Vice President at Dell’Oro Group. “The second quarter also saw the emergence of H3C. Spun out from HPE Aruba, it is now the sixth-ranked vendor in the Enterprise-class plus Outdoor market as well as the number one vendor in China.”

The 2Q16 Wireless LAN Quarterly Report also includes:

  • Revenue share of other top players in the Enterprise-class plus Outdoor market, including, in rank order, Cisco Systems, HPE Aruba, and Brocade Ruckus.
  • Analysis of 802.11ac Wave 2 Access Points with NBASE-T shipments, which Cisco began shipping during the quarter.
