The article focuses on the report from Jupiter Research Inc., which says employee demand is the main driver for wireless LANs deployments. Julie Ask, research director at Jupiter said that a majority of companies are also recognizing WLANs as a productivity tool for their employees and a more cost effective alternative to wired networks. The market researchers also found that few enterprises have rolled out WLANs on a wide scale, but that could be changing. According to Jupiter, 6 percent of medium size and large companies have 90 percent or more of their employees on a WLAN, but next year, that share could more than triple, to 22 percent of companies.
