REDWOOD CITY, Calif., July 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In a newly released market forecast report by Dell'Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, overall Wireless LAN market revenues are forecast to approach $12 billion in 2017, well over 50 percent greater than 2012 revenues. The key trends expected to drive this growth include deployment of Service Provider WiFi (SP WiFi), the 802.11ac upgrade cycle, and cloud-managed WLAN; with additional influence coming from consumer video over WiFi, and the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend.

"Enterprises now see wireless LAN access as critical, yet historically have installed wireless as an overlay network that is separate from the Ethernet network," said Chris DePuy, Vice President at Dell'Oro Group. "As new, higher-speed 802.11ac wireless systems are installed, we expect a growing number of companies will be re-considering the interaction between Ethernet edge switches and enterprise WLAN devices. This provides both opportunity and risk for Enterprise Edge vendors."

In the report, there is a forecast chart for cloud-managed equipment and cloud-managed services revenue.  Also included in the report are estimates on total SP WiFi units and revenue forecasts, and an analysis.
