A RECENT study by Gartner has ranked Australia fourth on the list in the Asia Pacific for shipments and revenue of WLAN for 2002, behind Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.
The study showed WLAN end-user revenue grew 104.1 per cent to $US22.3 million (5.7 per cent of Asia Pacific revenue) and units increasing 131.4 per cent to 132,800 units (3.9 per cent of Asia Pacific shipments).
However, Gartner analyst Robin Simpson says enterprises in Australia have been much slower to adopt WLAN, due to lingering security concerns, low awareness of the value of mobility and the relatively small number of public hotspots.
“Enterprises in Australia are still unaware and confused about the real benefits of deploying wireless LAN. Many end users do not know where to begin,” he says.
