REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – August 08, 2017 – According to a newly released market forecast report by Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, migration to higher-end and Cloud-managed products will bolster the Wireless LAN market between now and 2021. Over the forecast period, average prices will rise with user adoption of new technologies and Cloud subscription licenses

“The trend is clear—users are willing to pay a premium for higher-performance WiFi experience,” said Trent Dell’Oro, Business Analyst at Dell’Oro Group. “Over the past several quarters average prices have been rising on like-for-like class of products. For example, upgrades to 802.11ac Wave 2, and NBASE-T have been contributing to rising average prices. We predict the trend will continue in 2018 and beyond as 802.11ax products become widely available. What we found most interesting is the impact Cloud-managed subscription license will have on average prices over the long run. By the fourth year of the forecast, the compounded income from licenses will be a significant contribution,” added Dell’Oro.
