London, United Kingdom, 2007/11/13 - Report Buyer, the online destination for business intelligence for major industry sectors, has now added a new report showing that the overall Wi-Fi market will reach $5.6 billion in revenue by 2012.
The market is poised for widespread adoption in both consumer and enterprise market segments over the next six years.
“Wi-Fi: The Next Generation?” reports that the industry adoption of 802.11n Draft Specification 2.0 will be a major factor in the growth of Wi-Fi. The specification will allow equipment vendors to transition to the final 802.11n standard next year through software upgrades. Offering end-user data rates of well over 100 Mb/s, 802.11n more than quadruples the speeds of current Wi-Fi networks.
Authors of the report believe that with increasing Wi-Fi adoption in the enterprise market, revenue in the enterprise space will surpass that in the consumer market over the next six years. Wi-Fi is increasingly becoming pervasive, with presence in a wide range of consumer electronic devices. 802.11n, will herald a networked home where multimedia networking will be the norm.
The implementation of Unlicensed Mobile Access represents the first step in fixed mobile convergence, and the adoption of IP Multimedia Subsystem will give impetus to this convergence.
According to the report, end-user devices are increasingly both voice and data enabled, and are becoming dual-mode, supporting both Wi-Fi and cellular networks. During the forecast period of this report, voice and data roaming between cellular and Wi-Fi networks will become seamless.
