REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – December 6, 2017 – 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, sales in Europe and China propelled the Wireless LAN market during 3Q17 with Cisco and Ubiquiti gaining share in Europe, while H3C gained share in China.

“The Wireless LAN market came in stronger than we predicted in Europe, largely from the Education vertical refreshing and expanding the network,” said Trent Dell’Oro, Business Analyst at Dell’Oro Group. “Europe is certainly a growth engine of the Wireless LAN market, and the competitive landscape is heating up as the Chinese vendors turn their attention to that region. Whereas in China, much of the growth is coming from the construction of wireless cities throughout the country. The wireless city construction boom began in early 2017 — all provinces and major cities in China are actively investing in public WiFi infrastructure,” added Dell’Oro.

The Wireless LAN Quarterly Report covers additional highlights about the market, such as a discussion of what caused a slowdown in the adoption of Wave 2 access points. Shipments of access points with NBASE-T are reported because wireless LAN with NBASE-T will trigger one of the most significant upgrades in the Enterprise Campus Ethernet network since circa 2000.
