Beyond the Router, Wi-Fi in Mobile Devices, and Home Consumer Equipment

The Wi-Fi market has undergone many changes since its birth in 2000. It started largely as a technology to enable wireless data transfer for computing devices but has since branched out into many applications. The growth of the smartphone market has been a major boon for the Wi-Fi market and is now the dominant application; over half a billion Wi-Fi enabled smartphones shipped in 2011. This study outlines the major growth phases for Wi-Fi, addressing WI-FI market development from access points to smartphones and beyond.
