Digital Transformation Enabled by Wireless Apps

Wireless communication solutions in the enterprise continue to gain momentum from new technologies and associated software applications. Across all industries and geographies, the demand has increased substantially over the last couple of years.

Meanwhile, the Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) market is growing in complexity with the new Wi-Fi standards, 6 GHz spectrum availability, Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity integration, disruptive business models, and more value-added services.

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.

"The growing complexity of the WLAN market is causing confusion and uncertainty within the industry but also leading to new opportunities," said Andrew Zignani, research director at ABI Research

ABI's new Wi-Fi and Wireless LAN Technologies and Markets research service will provide holistic coverage of the enabling technologies, emerging enterprise use cases and services, business model innovation, and the overall competitive landscape. 

Key focus areas include WLAN technology evolution via new wireless standards, chipset and RF front-end innovation, and value-added services such as Wi-Fi sensing, security, and network management.

In addition, the service will cover the market drivers, vertical level dynamics, competitive landscape, and business model innovation at a global and regional level.

According to the ABI assessment, the path to Wi-Fi and 5G convergence will be important alongside changes via specialized and proprietary WLAN enhancements beyond the radio level.

"The new research service will provide complete coverage of the growing complexity of the WLAN market, including technology innovation, new IT and OT market opportunities, said Andrew Spivey, industry analyst at ABI Research.

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.
