Dell'Oro: WLAN revenues jump 20% in Q3

Overall wireless LAN revenues in the third quarter jumped more than 20 percent from the year-ago period thanks to strong enterprise WLAN growth of nearly 40 percent, said a new report from Dell'Oro Group.

In addition, the firm said that the number of high-end WLAN devices used by service providers to deliver public Wi-Fi service have increased more than 100 percent compared with last year.

"Service providers are motivated to differentiate service offerings to smartphone, tablet and notebook customers by expanding Wi-Fi services," said Dell'Oro analyst Chris DePuy, in a release. "Service providers with cellular infrastructures benefit as Wi-Fi usage expands because this reduces demand on their more licensed spectrum networks."

Cisco Systems remains the revenue market share leader in the enterprise WLAN market, followed by Aruba Networks and Hewlett Packard. In the outdoor mesh segment, BelAir Networks is number one by revenue, followed by Tropos Networks and Ruckus Wireless.
