An increasing number of public wireless local area networks (wireless LAN) will drive the worldwide market for wireless and mobile infrastructure consulting, integration, and management services to reach US$37.42 billion by 2006 predicts IDC.

The research group is expecting the market to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 15%.

“The deployment of Internet, extranet, remote access and mobile networking infrastructure technologies has left end users at all levels of the corporate structure demanding increased network access to greater amounts of information from various remote locations, including airports and convention centres,” says Richard Dean, director of wireless & mobile infrastructure services, IDC.

“As a result, Internet roaming is becoming more popular as more end users wish to access the Internet by using the network facilities and services of providers other than their ‘home providers’ We expect demand for Internet roaming services to increase for a number of reasons, including increasing numbers of Internet users and telecommuters worldwide, increasing mobility of the global workforce, and increasing importance of data communications in the business world,” he adds.
