As organizations look to network vendors to deliver converged wired and wireless LAN solutions, the vendors offering those solutions are engaged in a flurry of business activity. The market is undergoing drastic consolidation, resulting in a landscape that is too unstable for an accurate ranking of vendors.
- The wireless LAN has become the dominant medium of access to the corporate network while traditional wired switches and routers continue to run at the network's edge.
- Organizations are no longer pursuing wired and wireless network solutions separately. Rather, they seek converged solutions from their network vendors.
- Traditional network giants are rapidly establishing partnerships, or merging outright, with wireless LAN providers in order to unify their product portfolios.
With all of the activity between vendors in this space, publishing a new Vendor Landscape now would result in it becoming outdated very quickly.
