New Datacomm Research Report: Wireless LAN Equipment Shipments to Triple Within Five Years
ST. LOUIS, Feb. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- The market for wireless LAN gear will roughly double in value and triple in unit shipments by 2009 -- largely thanks to next-generation technology delivering higher throughput, longer range, and greater capacity. That is one of the conclusions of the new 83-page report, Wireless LANs: Opportunities & Challenges in Home Entertainment, Voice, and Public Access, released today by Datacomm Research Company.
Wireless LANs: Opportunities & Challenges in Home Entertainment, Voice, and Public Access is based on in-depth interviews with executives at more than three dozen manufacturers, service providers, application developers and major end-user organizations. The report identifies the challenges to growth in home multimedia, integrated cellular-Wi-Fi, public access and machine-to-machine applications; analyzes user interface, power consumption, latency, and other requirements; and describes the likely role of MIMO-OFDM technology. MIMO-OFDM exploits multipath propagation, an inherent feature of all wireless communications environments, delivering greater throughput, range, and reliability.
Additional conclusions found in Wireless LANs: Opportunities & Challenges in Home Entertainment, Voice, and Public Access:
1. Enterprise applications account for a small portion of wireless LAN
sales. Security-conscious organizations will continue to proceed with
caution. However, the popularity of notebook PCs is forcing all large
enterprises to secure their endpoint devices.
2. The success of Wi-Fi hot spots has so far been disappointing. New
business models and interoperation with cellular networks are cause
for optimism, though. Wi-Fi will ultimately play the lead role
providing robust and cost-effective indoor wireless services.
3. Improvements in battery performance, quality of service (QoS), range,
and throughput are crucial to wireless LANs' success in major new
markets. The wireless LAN industry must encourage both technology
innovation and standards development.
