  • WLAN市場における主要企業は?これらの企業はこの莫大な機会に関与するためどのように位置づけているか?
  • 約束された拡大の機会を持つWPAN市場は、WLAN技術を開放するか?
  • 現役のWLAN企業が直面している問題は?これらの企業は成功を保証するためどの戦略を採用できるか?
目次

This report examines the technologies, standards, applications, players and anticipated market growth for mid-range wireless networks. We also examine the factors that have contributed to WLANs success and future considerations for this segment of the Internet of Things (IoT).

The WLAN market is characterized by its relatively calm atmosphere and in stark contrast to the WPAN market, this cohesion has helped to drive innovation and dominance. Based on our analysis, Harbor predicts 802.11 enabled technology will grow from 1.4 billion shipments in 2012 to over 3.6 billion shipments by 2016. A few factors will contribute to this growth, but the innovative capacity and efforts of the IEEE 802.11 subcommittees b, g, n, and ac have helped to ensure the functionality and applicability of 802.11 technologies are consistently expanded.

Product Description

Key related points from the analysis include:

  • Internet Protocol directly to the device has become an integral element in advanced M2M connectivity and thanks in part to the rapid growth of smartphones and tablets and the more advanced IoT solutions that require streaming or large file transfers, IP will continue to define success and growth for the WLAN market
  • Architects of 802.11 standard understood how a 'generalist' approach can help ensure stable market share - this has freed them up to expand the functionality of 802.11 technology, with 802.11s Mesh WiFi, for instance; certain companies can learn from their success
  • Being backwards-compatible has greatly expanded the breadth of 802.11 and given investors and end-users comfort to know that the technology they choose to pursue will not be obsolete in the near future
  • WLAN is currently actively encroaching on WPAN technologies; without increased interoperability, WLAN technology will ultimately win-out and relegate WPAN technologies to niche applications
  • IEEE standards committees and the WiFi Alliance are currently repeating the benefits from the decisions they made years ago. The increased clarity, trust and innovative capacity these activities has allowed WiFi to , but at the 'edge' of WiFi's applications comes interesting overlaps that are wholly unique for the Internet of Things.

Our analysis and research is focused on understanding the strategic market development implications within the emerging Internet of Things (IoT) arena as they relate to WLAN networks, including:

  • What are the significant challenges users, product OEMs, service providers and silicon players face in this arena?
  • How many WLAN enabled devices will there be in each market segment using which technologies? How have advancements in the technology expanded applicable use-cases for WLAN technology?
  • Who are the key players in the WLAN marketplace and how are they positioned to engage in this enormous opportunity?
  • Will the WPAN sector, which holds so much promised expansion opportunity, open up to WLAN technologies?
  • What are the issues facing incumbent WLAN players? What strategies can these players employ to ensure success?
