In addition to WLANs, the study addresses the major standards organizations, their standards for Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPANs) and applications. These standards organizations include the IEEE, Bluetooth, the Zigbee Alliance, WiGig and Wimedia in addition to standards organizations for wireless metropolitan area networks (WMANs). 

This market study also discusses the next step in the evolution of WLANs. The High Efficiency WLAN Study Group (HEW SG) within the IEEE 802.11Working Group is involved in developing the next WLAN standard that will improve the efficiency and performance of WLANs. 

The major U.S wireless carriers have been scrambling to expand their networks and network capacity for the latest in broadband technology - 4G LTE service - to accommodate demands for more bandwidth from a vast number of users as traffic from smartphones, tablets and computers continues to skyrocket. The Wireless Metropolitan Area Networks (WMAN) section of this market study covers AT&T Wireless, Verizon Wireless, Sprint and T-Mobile-U S and their activities. 

Because Hotspots are big revenue producers for companies, this study also focuses on this skyrocketing industry segment. It addresses a new wireless specification, Hotspot 2.0 which simplifies connection and uses the IEEE 802.11u standard to interface with carrier WANs. It also addresses a number of hotspot vendor innovations. 

Cloud computing, virtual networks and unified communication are evolving wireless industry trends supported by network vendors and adopted by a growing number of businesses from small to large corporations to substantially improve operating efficiency and to drive down operating and communications costs. 

Because of their growing significance in user networks, this study addresses these trends.
