"Today's enterprise applications are now built for mobile devices, enabling workers to be nomadic.  The emphasis on mobile devices places new demands on the corporate wireless infrastructure.  It also forces companies to maintain connections to employees while they traverse to cellular networks, and drives the need to apply consistent access rules for both Ethernet and wireless access systems," said Chris DePuy, Vice President at Dell'Oro Group.  "We see continued innovation at the edge of enterprise networks that will drive continued investment in both wireless equipment as well as access management infrastructure."

The report details why the Enterprise segment will grow faster than SOHO and exceed it during the forecast period.  Also included in the report are estimates on total SP WiFi units and revenue forecasts and an analysis and current breakdown of the cloud-managed addressable market by vertical industry.
