REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – July 20, 2016 – In 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, the Enterprise Wireless LAN market will expand over 60 percent by 2020. Cloud-managed Enterprise Wireless LAN revenues are expected to grow nearly double the rate of the Enterprise Wireless LAN market over the same period.

“While Cisco’s Meraki products have represented a significant portion of the overall Cloud-managed Access Point market, many of its competitors have launched competing products. The list of vendors now includes Aerohive, HPE Aruba, Ruckus Wireless and Xirrus,” said Chris DePuy, Vice President at Dell’Oro Group. “We expect that the wider availability of Cloud-managed products from vendors will encourage customers, especially small and medium-sized businesses, to adopt the Cloud more readily. Enterprises are moving to the Cloud to reduce costs and complexity while improving management of remotely located systems,” DePuy continued.

The Wireless LAN 5-Year Forecast Report includes a detailed discussion on both Wave 1 and Wave 2 802.11ac for Enterprise-class devices and an analysis of Cloud-managed Wireless LAN. The report also includes forecast estimates on total Service Provider WiFi units and revenue.
