New study shows mushrooming future for WLL

Wireless local loop (WLL) technology will affect the world phone market by the end of 2006 with over 100 million subscribers, according to a recently released report from Allied Business Intelligence, Inc. (ABI) entitled "Wireless Access Solutions to Local Loop Telephony 1998." The infrastructure market will, concurrently, grow from 17,600 base stations in use presently for WLL applications to 714,200.

ROI for Wireless LANs

WLANA--Wireless LAN Alliance--a consortium of leading worldwide suppliers of wireless local area networking products and technologies, commissioned a study by independent Tech Research to examine the costs and benefits associated with actual wireless LAN installations. Among the study's major findings: The average time to fully pay back the initial costs of such installations was 8.9 months. Ninety-seven percent of customers claimed that wireless LANs met or exceeded expectations that their company would gain a competitive advantage. And "definite economic and business benefits" were found by 92% after installation. Mark Sullivan, director of WLANA, says the results of the study explain why this market is growing at "a 40-60% annual rate and is expected to reach $1 billion by the year 2000."
