REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – February 8, 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, Enterprise-class Wireless LAN market sales are forecast to almost double by 2021. Enterprise campus network upgrades to 802.11ac Wave 2, and Public WiFi deployments will contribute to strength over the forecast period.

“During 2016, the strongest growth in the Enterprise-class Wireless LAN market came from China and Europe,” said Trent Dell’Oro, Business Analyst at Dell’Oro Group. “Government-funded technology upgrades in the education sector and greenfield deployments were particularly strong. These deployments included sports stadiums, airports, and downtown central business districts. We expect that as government leaders observe the successful digitization of targeted rollouts, additional administrations will also follow,” Dell’Oro continued.

The Wireless LAN 5-Year Forecast Report highlights other key trends, including:

  • Enterprise Campus networking trends for wired Ethernet and Wireless LAN.
  • Cloud-managed Wireless LAN is forecast to be one of the fastest growth areas in the market.
