Examines total cost of WLAN deployment based on several controller models from Aruba Networks, Cisco Systems and Trapeze Networks, using list and discounted prices for comparison; for small, mid-sized and large enterprise deployments.
The wireless LAN (WLAN) market has seen tremendous growth in recent years. The proliferation of laptops with embedded Wi-Fi, the rising demands of business users on-the-go and the promise of WiMAX has caused WLAN adoption to spread like wildfire. According to the Yankee Group 2006 Transatlantic Wireless Business Survey:
- Approximately 18% of businesses in the United States are piloting WLAN technology
- Another 31% plan to deploy WLAN in the next 2 years
- European WLAN adoption is even more rapid
Despite the growth and success of mobility with WLAN, businesses face a difficult issue: creating a cost model for WLAN equipment. Nowadays, TCO and ROI models are required before considering technology purchases or upgrades. As a result, cost plays an important factor in vendor selection.
