SPOTLIGHT: Enterprise WLAN changing landscape


There is a lot of money in enterprise WLANs, and the market for these systems will reach about $1.3 billion by the end of the year. Gabriel Brown, in a recent Unstrung Insider report, says that the growth of the enterprise WLAN sector is fueled and shaped by the coupling of disruptive new technologies which increase performance requirements and create new challenges for developing and marketing WLAN products. "On the applications side it's about tighter integration with sophisticated services such as corporate VOIP and asset tracking, or even relatively simple guest access capability... And on the technology side it's about MIMO, the unification of wired and wireless infrastructure, wireless mesh, and, in some cases, the migration to distributed switching architectures," Brown says.
