Wireless Mesh Networking Market size is anticipated to surpass USD 8 billion by 2026, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.
The wireless mesh networking market growth is supported by increasing emphasis of enterprises to reduce the infrastructure cost of networking devices. The lack of networking cables and minimal hardware requirements makes wireless mesh networks an attractive option for delivering affordable connectivity. These network systems eliminate the issues of a single point of failure, where the failure of one node shuts down the entire system. In mesh systems, the connectivity is maintained by rerouting signals through functional nodes, bypassing the faulty node and ensuring minimal system downtimes.
Surging demand for managed services to ensure always-on connectivity of wireless mesh networks
The services segment held a wireless mesh networking market share of around 20% in 2019 and is set to witness a growth rate of nearly 20% over the forecast period.
