REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – September 2, 2014 –

A recently published report by Dell'Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, revealed the Wireless LAN (WLAN) market grew six percent in the second quarter 2014 versus the year-ago period.

"In their fifth quarter of shipments, Enterprise-class 802.11ac access point revenues nearly doubled versus the prior quarter," said Chris DePuy, Vice President of Wireless LAN research at Dell'Oro Group.  "Cisco leads with 54% of 802.11ac Enterprise-class revenues, followed by Aruba with 20%, and a near dead-heat between Aerohive, Meru and Xirrus for third place revenue share.  Interestingly, the SOHO market is experiencing a slower uptake of 802.11ac while the Enterprise-class market is adopting it faster."

In the second quarter 2014, the top three vendors in the combined Enterprise-Class and Outdoor Mesh Nodes category were Cisco Systems, Aruba Networks and Ruckus Wireless.
