Wireless communication is an ever-developing field, and the future holds many possibilities. However, the Wireless LAN market is faced with a number of issues, from ensuring data security to maintaining interoperability for Ethernet-like functionality and to scaling to service provider-sized networks.

To take advantage of the opportunities in this market, component manufacturers, equipment vendors, service providers, and financial institutions need to answer critical business questions including:

  • How fast is the market adopting 802.11ac?
  • Which equipment vendors are the leaders in Outdoor Mesh Nodes equipment?
  • What will be the impact on the stand-alone SOHO market as wireless home networking evolves from a shared connection to a content distribution platform?
  • Who are the market leaders in North America, EMEA, and Asia Pacific? Why are they strong?
  • What are the trends with Service Provider WiFi?
  • What the trends with Cloud-managed WiFi?

To answer these and other important questions, Dell’Oro Group delivers both quarterly reports and 5-year forecasts on the Wireless LAN market.
