WiFi Sales Up – Revenues Up Less
Not the most shocking news, but Gartner group has published that while 2002 WiFi sales were up 120% over 2001, revenues were only up 29%. This is because many manufacturers entered the market, producing strong competition and reduced profit margins. Shrinking revenues are also the result of steadily dropping costs of production. All told, consumers benefit. Gartner also shows how Linksys overtook Cisco as the leading vendor, but the Cisco purchase of Linksys makes this point moot.
