"Three trends are now driving faster-than-industry growth in the enterprise WLAN segment - devices that are cloud-managed, those optimized for use by Service Providers, and systems that leverage software to integrate wireless and wired infrastructures," explained Chris DePuy, Analyst of Wireless LAN research at Dell'Oro Group.  "We see vendors focusing innovation dollars and marketing efforts to aggressively pursue these three areas," said DePuy.
