Today’s post looks at the rise in revenue in the WLAN market during 2010. Companies like Cisco, Meru, Aruba, HP, etc. saw excellent growth in 2010, and as the article states, is largely due to the rise in smartphones and tablets. Here’s a look at some of the numbers;
IDC analysts [Sept. 1] said that in the second quarter, WLAN revenue grew 29.7 percent over the same period in 2010, jumping to $1.52 billion, with the enterprise WLAN segment growing 43.4 percent to almost $725 million in that interval.
That’s great news and highlights that while focus has shifted to wireless wide-area networks, wireless LAN infrastructure is still very much alive in the mobile enterprise. Coupled with the growth that’s expected to continue with smartphones and tablets in the wireless ecosystem, WLAN vendors seem prime for good revenue.
