REDWOOD CITY, Calif., June 14 /PRNewswire/ -- A recently published report by Dell'Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, revealed that the worldwide wireless LAN (WLAN) market grew 20 percent year-over-year in the first quarter of 2010, driven in large part by the continued strength of the enterprise market that achieved its highest quarterly revenue level in the first quarter of this year.

"Enterprise market revenues grew at twice the rate of the overall market and have now risen 5 straight quarters, showing that WLAN continues to grow in importance to businesses," stated Loren Shalinsky, Senior Analyst of Wireless LAN research at Dell'Oro Group.  "First quarter enterprise WLAN revenues are traditionally the low point of the year, as we have seen every year since we started tracking this market in 2002.  We forecast that the record enterprise revenues during the first quarter will help propel the overall market to over $5 billion this year, easily surpassing the previous annual high in 2008," added Shalinsky.  

According to the report, each of the following WLAN vendors posted record quarterly revenues in the first quarter of this year: Alcatel-Lucent, Aruba, Meru, Motorola, NETGEAR, and Trapeze.
