Enterprise WLAN Market Development

Furthermore, the evolution of cellular and WLAN technologies is pushing CIOs and CTOs to consider deploying heterogeneous Wi-Fi + 5G networks that can optimize performance, cost, reliability, and enable new use cases fundamental to digital transformation.

These market dynamics and innovative solutions can drive enterprise WLAN infrastructure revenues to reach $14.5 billion by 2028, according to the latest worldwide market study by ABI Research.

ABI analysts will now provide industry vendors, start-up innovators, and channel suppliers with actionable research, data-driven insight, and strategic guidance through these growing complexities.

Outlook for Enterprise WLAN Applications Growth

The quest for strategic digital business transformation solutions has driven demand for actionable insights and strategic guidance that will support leaders to take advantage of the emerging new opportunities presented, and move quickly to respond to the emerging trends.

That said, I expect traditional vendors in the global wireless ecosystem to partner with more value-added service providers and systems integrators that can advance new use case design, development, deployment, and ongoing enterprise adoption.
