According to Dell’Oro Group report "Wireless LAN Quarterly," the service provider mesh wireless LAN market declined by almost 10 percent in the fourth quarter of 2008, but is expected to reverse this trend and experience double-digit growth in 2009. The report indicates that in the fourth quarter, municipal Wi-Fi contributed to more than 70 percent sequential growth in Cablevision’s net subscriber additions, a rate higher than any other cable operator in North America.

The report also indicates that strong, double-digit revenue growth for enterprise-grade 802.11n equipment was only able to partially offset a sharp decline in 802.11a/g equipment sales in the fourth quarter.
