According to market research firm Dell'Oro Group, the WLAN 802.11 market will grow from $1.5B in 2002 to $3.1B in 2007, with all product categories continuing to drive revenue growth through the scope of the forecast.

Dell'Oro's recently published report indicates that most products will transition from 802.11b to 802.11g and then to 802.11 multimode (802.11a/g), with the exception being enterprise-class access points which will likely skip the transitions to 802.11g and move quickly to multimode solutions.

According to Greg Collins, Director, Dell'Oro, "The major product categories that we track are in varying stages of transition. Both the SOHO-infrastructure segment and the Network Interface Card (NIC) segment are transitioning from purely standalone products to WLAN becoming an embedded feature in other mainstream technology products; namely broadband Customer Premises Equipment (CPE), notebook, and handheld computers respectively."

"We are also at the early stages of Enterprise WLAN networks moving from largely standalone networks and applications, to becoming more tightly integrated with existing voice and data networks. As the barriers to WLAN deployments in the Enterprise fall and as WLAN clients and networks proliferate outside of the Enterprise, we will see increased penetration of WLAN in Enterprise environments," Collins added.
