In a newly released market forecast report by Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, overall Wireless LAN market revenues are forecast to reach almost $13 billion in 2019, nearly 40 percent greater than 2014 revenues.

Important technology transitions during the forecast include Wave 2 802.11ac Access Points and 2.5 & 5 Gbps Ethernet interfaces on Access Points.

“We expect 2015 to be a pivotal year for the Enterprise-class WLAN market with the introduction of higher speed 802.11ac Wave 2 systems,” said Chris DePuy, Vice President at Dell’Oro Group. “This will drive a need for greater Ethernet speeds, opening the door for an upgrade cycle to 2.5 and 5 Gbps Ethernet, which will drive a potential upgrade cycle for Campus Switching as well.”

In response to the new technology trends emerging in 2015, the Wireless LAN Five-Year Forecast Report now contains a forecast of both Wave 1 and Wave 2 802.11ac for Enterprise-class devices.
