Thin/unified AP leads WLAN market since 2010


With strong growth rate,
29.9%

CAGR
, thin/unified APs selling volumes , up to 3
million units, surpass standalone APs’ by 2010.

802.11n is the mainstream now


802.11n will account for
97%

of thin/ unified AP shipments by 2014.

Enterprise Wireless Market Update

The market of wireless control appliance is booming


Upon the growth of thin/unified AP, wireless control appliance rise dramatically up to
370K

units by 2014, representing market value
