Residential Wi-Fi poised for explosive growth says In-Stat

[In-Stat/MDR finds 802.11b nearing obsolescence with demand growing for 802.11g or a/g in newer Wi-Fi multimedia devices.]

Scottsdale, AZ -- The market for Wi-Fi residential gear is undergoing massive change based on new standards, equipment and services, and it is poised for explosive growth, according to In-Stat/MDR. For example, the high-tech market research firm forecasts that Wi-Fi media devices will grow at a 104.7% compound annual growth rate to 44,601 total units shipped in 2008.

While certain Wi-Fi segments are on the rise, others are under assault. "For example, legacy 802.11b Wi-Fi infrastructure and clients are nearing obsolescence and decreasing 802.11b product price points have squeezed margins across the industry," said In-Stat/MDR Director Norm Bogen.

A recent In-Stat/MDR survey also found:

* Residential Wi-Fi vendors have been focusing their product strategies on the "Wi-Fi triple play" -- the delivery of bundled voice, video and data services.

* For the first time, Wi-Fi Mini PCI Cards represented the most Wi-Fi adapters shipped in 2003, displacing the former dominance of Wi-Fi PC Cards.

* Most of the Wi-Fi multimedia devices will provide support for the 802.11g standard, although a significant volume will provide support for the 802.11a/g standard, given their need for more RF channels and higher quality of service.
