Enterprise campus network upgrades to 802.11ac Wave 2, and Public WiFi deployments will contribute to strength over the forecast period.
"During 2016, the strongest growth in the Enterprise-class Wireless LAN market came from China and Europe," said Trent Dell'Oro, Business Analyst at Dell'Oro Group. "Government-funded technology upgrades in the education sector and greenfield deployments were particularly strong. These deployments included sports stadiums, airports, and downtown central business districts. We expect that as government leaders observe the successful digitization of targeted rollouts, additional administrations will also follow," Dell'Oro continued.
