REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – September 7, 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, 2Q17 was the strongest quarter in four years for the Wireless LAN market, propelled by government initiatives, Cisco’s new product launch, and HPE Aruba sales promotion.

“Many factors contributed to robust year-over-year growth during 2Q17,” said Trent Dell’Oro, Business Analyst at Dell’Oro Group. “The Wireless LAN market is certainly elastic, as demonstrated by the growing popularity of Ubiquiti’s lower-priced products. The Aruba Instant promotion also proved the market is elastic and helped HPE gain share. Cisco launched a new outdoor product targeted at rural deployments in price sensitive countries, which is well-timed as government initiatives to blanket the country, or tourist destinations is catching hold.  Government WiFi projects were notably strong in Asia, as well as select countries in the Middle East and Africa,” added Dell’Oro.

The report covers additional highlights such as sales by vertical industry, the Cloud-managed channel, and the adoption of NBASE-T.
