Research and Markets: Global WLAN Equipment Market 2012-2016 with Alcatel-Lucent, Juniper Networks Inc. and Cisco Systems Inc. Dominating

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/zkl2bk/global_wlan) has announced the addition of the "Global WLAN Equipment Market 2012-2016" report to their offering.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global WLAN Equipment market to grow at a CAGR of 17.81 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing adoption of smartphones and tablets. The Global WLAN Equipment market has also been witnessing the increasing enterprise mobility. However, the network security issues could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

The key vendors dominating this market space are Aruba Networks Inc., Cisco Systems Inc., Hewlett-Packard Co., and Netgear Inc.

The other vendors mentioned in the report are Alcatel-Lucent, Aerohive Networks, Brocade Communications Systems Inc., D-Link Corp., Enterasys Networks Inc., Extreme Networks Inc., Juniper Networks Inc., Meru Networks Inc., Motorola Solutions Inc., Polycom Inc., Ruckus Wireless Inc., Xirrus Inc., Meraki Inc., and TP-Link Technologies Co. Ltd.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Networking team said: ''The increasing enterprise mobility in recent years has resulted in increased demand for wireless equipment and end-user devices. Smart mobile devices including personal devices as well as those that are corporately owned have increased many times over in enterprises in the last ten years. These devices increase enterprise connectivity through business applications, which increases employee productivity and reduces operational costs. Enterprises are now accepting the trend of bring your own device (BYOD) in their organizations. Employees are not only replacing Ethernet cables with Wi-Fi signals, but they take their devices into conference rooms. Enterprise mobility is heading toward an increase in enterprise and cloud applications including applications for business intelligence and collaboration techniques.''

According to the report, one of the main growth drivers is the increasing adoption of smartphones and tablets. People across the globe are increasingly using mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets, and personal digital assistants (PDAs) for personal as well as official purposes. These devices are intelligently connected to each other through various complex wireless networks, advanced modules, smart sensors, and software. Hence, the use of these devices has increased the demand for the deployment of WLAN infrastructure and equipment.
