Keywords:WLAN  Wi-Fi  dual band 

According to ABI Research, Wi-Fi equipment shows 16.5 per cent growth with 802.11n (Dual band) being the preferred wireless protocol in the first half of 2012.

Cisco remains on the top spot of the enterprise Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN) equipment market with 36 per cent of the world market share followed by ZTE and Aruba based on shipments, noted ABI. Cisco has a dominating presence in North America and European markets, but is increasingly losing ground from close competition from ZTE in APAC, Latin America, and MEA. Aruba grabs the 3rd position by marginally beating HP Procurve with a stronger presence in North America and Europe with little or no presence in Asia and Latin American markets.

Adarsh Krishnan, senior analyst, TV, video and broadband comments, "Increasing bandwidth requirement continues to drive 802.11n (Dual band) wireless protocol while the market slowly starts to adopt its successor and more advanced 802.11ac protocol in the enterprise WLAN market."

In the Consumer/SOHO WLAN market segment TP-LINK dominates the equipment market, taking the lion's share of the APAC market and is becoming a growing presence in other regions. Netgear takes the 2nd spot with a strong market share in North America and Europe followed by D-Link. TP-LINK maintains its dominance in APAC, while it competes with ZTE and Technicolor who are rapidly increasing their market share in Latin America. As of the first half of 2012 ZTE continues to lose its market share to TP-Link and Technicolor in the region.

"Dual and triple play services from broadband Internet service providers continue to drive the residential gateway equipment market where Netgear continues to be the market leader worldwide," adds TV, video and broadband practice director, Sam Rosen.
