NETGEAR grew 40 percent in wireless LAN market

NETGEAR revenue grew 40 percent year-over-year in 1Q11 in
SOHO segment of wireless LAN market globally.



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, according to Dell’Oro Group.



The rising shipments and average selling prices (ASPs)
drove the wireless LAN market to grow 18 percent 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, according to
Dell’Oro Group.



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,” said 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,” Shalinsky
