The WLAN equipment market posted a flat growth rate in Q2 2002, ending a streak of nine consecutive quarters of growth. However, the market still managed to grow nearly 38 percent from the same quarter last year, reaching sales of $454.3 million, according to the Synergy Research Group (SRG).

Further, enterprise WLAN equipment sales were down two percent sequentially while SOHO/home WLAN equipment sales grew two percent for the quarter and ware up 94 percent from the same period a year ago. The SOHO/home segment represented more than 56 percent of the total WLAN market.

"Although Q2 can be viewed as a relatively flat quarter in both the enterprise and consumer WLAN markets, there still much to look forward to," says Aaron Vance, WLAN industry analyst at SRG. "The 802.11 technology remains cutting-edge and the market sits on the cusp of new technologies and applications such as dual-mode, Public Access, and Voice over WLAN."
