Wireless LAN Market Leaped 18 Percent in the First Quarter of 2011, According to Dell’Oro Group
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., June 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — A recently published report by Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, revealed that rising shipments and average selling prices (ASPs) drove the wireless LAN market to grow 18% year-over-year in 1Q11. All three of the segments – service provider mesh, enterprise, and small office, home office (SOHO), were up by double-digit percentages during the quarter.
“While down on a sequential basis, the enterprise WLAN segment exhibited a growth rate of 22 percent year-over-year, reaching $573 million in revenues for the quarter,” stated Loren Shalinsky, Senior Analyst of Wireless LAN research at Dell’Oro Group. “Growing acceptance of personal devices such as smartphones and tablets in offices, is leading to greater diversity in sales, and is driving the general enterprise segment. Aruba and HP gained the most market share in the enterprise segment on a year-over-year basis. Aruba’s market share grew four percentage points driven by strong sales in North America, while HP’s market share grew more than two percentage points as a result of strong sales in Asia Pacific, particularly in China,” added Shalinsky.
According to the report, Buffalo and NETGEAR established new high levels for SOHO revenue during the first quarter of 2011, with Buffalo growing more than 30 percent and NETGEAR growing more than 40 percent, versus the same quarter last year. In the enterprise segment, Alcatel-Lucent, Aruba, Buffalo, and Enterasys all posted sequential revenue growth that exceeded 10 percent.
