The trends affecting enterprise WLAN market are the advent of Wave 2 standard and the emergence of IoT platforms. The Wave 2 Access Point Standard uses the spectrum efficiently to enable Multi-user multiple-input and multiple-output (MU-MIMO), which allows it to connect multiple devices simultaneously. This is expected to boost the performance and efficiency of the enterprise WLAN devices. The IoT technology employs advanced sensors & software that enable devices to communicate with each other. This will increase the demand for next-generation WLAN devices with improved connectivity attributes.
The enterprise WLAN market is characterized by hardware, software, and services. The hardware market consists of wireless access points, AP antennas, wireless LAN controllers, multigigabit switches, and wireless location appliances. The growing demand for IoT technologies is expected the increase the demand in the hardware market. The software market comprises WLAN analytics, WLAN security, and WLAN management software. The increasing number of malware attacks on the company networks is driving the need for advanced cybersecurity solutions for enterprise WLAN networks. The services market is providing professional and managed services to their customers.
The enterprise WLAN is used across various industry verticals such as retail, transport & logistics, hospitality, healthcare, education, BFSI, and IT & Telecom. Enterprise WLAN is widely deployed across retail outlets to allow sales associates to place orders and monitor the inventory levels in real-time. The healthcare market is expected to grow significantly over the projected time period. This growth is led by the emergence of connected hospital systems where all pieces of equipment of the hospital are fully integrated, allowing professionals and patients to roam throughout the hospital premises. The enterprise WLAN technology is used in educational institutions to revolutionize their educational processes by enabling connected learning.
The North America region leads the enterprise WLAN market due to the presence of large companies such as Dell, EMC, and Cisco.
