ABI: 13M fixed wireless terminal, cellular routers to ship in 2015

Shipments of fixed wireless terminals and cellular routers are expected to number nearly 13 million by 2015, according to forecasts from ABI Research. This includes industrial terminals, business gateways, telephony adoptors and mobile broadband routers, which is expected to contribute the greatest increase in shipments. "Mobile broadband routers allowing multiple devices to connect from ‘anywhere' (a car, a hotel, a construction site) may be found in both consumer and business contexts," said ABI analyst Jeff Orr. "Businesses are already familiar with wired business continuity and redundancy methods. Now devices have ‘grown wings,' becoming mobile broadband routers. This segment is starting from practically zero, and its top is not yet in sight." Release
