Wireless is becoming another IP subnet on the enterprises core network, just like VoIP or video over IP, according to a new report released today by FTM Consulting Inc.

The structured cabling systems market for wireless local area networks (WLANs) is forecast to grow from US$202.5 million in 2007, at a cumulative average growth rate of 56.4%, to US$1.9 billion by 2012.

Frank Murawski, president of the research firm, said WLAN is being driven by new technology developments, such as IEEE802.11n, which will provide improved performance and improved security features.

In addition, the universal acceptance of Wi-Fi and the new developing technology, Wi-Max, provide enterprises with standardized technologies for use of wireless within buildings.

Moreover, the release of the TIA/EIA’s TSB-162 cabling standard in March 2006 provides a platform for deploying these new structured cabling systems.

These and other wireless developments, together with five-year forecasts for copper and fiber cabling are included within the report, entitled Wireless Structured Cabling Systems (SCS) Market.
