Authors: Rohit Mehra, Brandon Butler

Abstract

This IDC study provides an assessment of the capabilities and business strategies of 11 vendors in the worldwide enterprise WLAN market for 2017–2018.

"The worldwide enterprise WLAN market is a healthy and growing one that while approaching maturity is still producing significant innovations," says Brandon Butler, senior research analyst, Enterprise Network Infrastructure. "This market is driven by the need of enterprises to offer reliable and high-performing WLAN networks that support new business value, while taking advantage of the latest WiFi standards to support the ever-increasing use of mobile devices, and in the future, Internet of Things applications on the network. Meanwhile, vendors are increasingly turning to cloud-based management platforms and software tooling that uses machine learning technology to provide higher levels of automation. This IDC MarketScape can be helpful for organizations considering new or updated WLAN solutions, including evaluating various deploying options."
