Cisco, Ruckus Wireless and HP lead service provider Wi-Fi market in Q3 2012

Telecom Lead Asia: In the service provider Wi-Fi market, Cisco Systems, Ruckus Wireless and Hewlett-Packard are the top three vendors by revenue in the third quarter of 2012.

Cisco Systems maintained the majority revenue market share in the Enterprise WLAN market in the third quarter.

Aruba Networks and Hewlett-Packard are in the second and third positions.

In the SOHO market, Netgear retained the number one revenue rank, followed by Technicolor.

The Wireless LAN market posted record revenues in the third quarter, and a 19 percent revenue growth over the same period last year.

“Three trends are now driving faster-than-industry growth in the enterprise WLAN segment – devices that are cloud-managed, those optimized for use by Service Providers, and systems that leverage software to integrate wireless and wired infrastructures,” said Chris DePuy, analyst of Wireless LAN research at Dell’Oro Group.  “We see vendors focusing innovation dollars and marketing efforts to aggressively pursue these three areas,” said DePuy.
