[prnewswire] In a newly released market forecast report by Dell'Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, overall Wireless LAN (WLAN) market revenues are expected to surpass $8 billion in 2015, a 49% increase over 2010 revenues.
"The wireless LAN market continues its rapid expansion, as it tries to keep pace with the large growth in the number of Wi-Fi enabled devices," said Chris DePuy, Analyst of Wireless LAN research at Dell'Oro Group. "802.11n technology has helped to propel this market, and is continuing to evolve, providing for higher bandwidth connections and the ability to seamlessly roam from the cellular network to WLAN. The small office/home office (SOHO) segment, driven by huge growth in broadband CPE with WLAN and wireless routers, will continue to account for the majority of the revenue, but the enterprise segment, with its faster growth rate, will close the gap within the next few years. Universities and schools, one of the critical vertical segments for WLAN, benefit from government subsidy programs, like the US Federal Communications Commission's E-rate program," added DePuy.
