Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The worldwide 802.11b wireless networking market grew nine per cent in Q3 with revenues of $310 million, up from $284.5 million in Q2 and $178 million in Q3 2000.

Cisco led the pack for the quarter, reporting a strong 68 per cent growth to hold a 21 per cent market share. Its share bottomed out last quarter at just 14 per cent from a high last year, but is now recovering fast.

The outlook for the technology looks good as well, with growth of 35 per cent expected for 2002, despite the arrival of new 802.11a kit, according to the Dell'Oro Group.

Last year this time, Cisco led the pack with Agere at its heels (29 per cent share versus 25 per cent). Now, Agere retains second place, but its share has tanked to just 10 per cent. It was also the only manufacturer to record negative growth at 7 per cent for the quarter.

Linksys, Buffalo and Enterasys fill in the top five vendors for the sector.

The report covers 802.11b access points / bridges, broadband gateways and NICs. ®
