Gigabit Wi-Fi Access Points - Global Strategic Business Report

Growing proliferation of enterprise mobility, and increasing adoption of advanced IT strategies such as big data, and cloud computing have been driving enterprise IT departments to seek 802.11ac Wi-Fi capabilities to support the heavy IT activity. Service providers too have been embracing the latest Wi-Fi standard in order to enhance their network capacity and coverage area. While the Wave 1 802.11ac standard is already widespread in the marketplace, the expected proliferation of Wave 2 802.11ac standard over the next few years will only boost demand for access points based on the new standard. Promising a bandwidth leap to 7 Gbps and supporting up to 8 spatial streams and using the 160 MHz channels, the Wave 2 802.11ac standard will provide a considerable enhancement in speed from the existing 802.11ac standard.

As stated by the new market research report on Gigabit Wi-Fi Access Points, the United States represents the largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market with revenue from the region waxing at a CAGR of 51.4% over the analysis period. The growth in the region is largely driven by the development of the telecommunications sector, steady growth in the enterprise sector, increase in the number of office starts, and the subsequent rise in the number of new WLAN deployments and upgrades.
