The structured cabling systems market for wireless local area networks (WLANs) will grow from $202.5 million, at a cumulative average growth rate of 56.4%, to $1.9 billion by 2012, reported FTM Consulting.
“Wireless is becoming another IP subnet on the enterprise’s core network, just like voice (VOIP) or video (video over IP),” said Frank Murawski, President of FTM Consulting.
New technological developments, such as IEEE802.11n, are driving the wireless local network (WLAN). IEEE802.11n gives higher throughputs and improves security. Also, the universal acceptance of WiFi and the development of WiMAX are standardizing wireless for use within buildings.
What’s more, the release of the TIA/EIA – 162 cabling standard gave a platform for deploying these structured cabling systems.
