Wireless to Start Impacting the Structured Cabling Systems Market12 Oct 2011 • by Natalie Aster
HUMMELSTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA — FTM Consulting, Inc announced the release of its latest study, “Wireless Impact on the SCS Market.” Frank Murawski, President of FTM Consulting, said, “Until recently, wireless did not provide the performance capability of structured cabling systems (SCS) using copper and fiber cabling. Newer technologies, such as 802.11n have now placed wireless on a par with structured cabling systems’ performance. Future technologies including 802.11ac and 802.11ad will provide further performance improvements. In addition, the proliferation of newer mobile devices, such as newer smartphones and tablets, especially the Apple iPad, has placed increasing pressures on enterprises to allow for these devices to be connected to the enterprises’ network. We view the Apple iPad as a game changer, being universally accepted, in conjunction with enterprises’ apps being developed for use within enterprises.”

The analysis of these developments indicates the following:
- Moderate impact on the SCS market over the short term with SCS market growth declining from 22.9% in 2011 to a 14.7% growth by 2016.
- Severe impact in the far term, starting in the 2016 to 2017 time period.
Factors considered in the analysis included:
- Sunken investment in current networks;
- Newer networks likelihood to go wireless, bypassing SCS, especially small remote offices;
- High-speed applications, such as data centers and video, to be mainly immune to wireless;
- LAN network impact starts at edge, with some impact between the edge and the core with the core remaining mainly SCS.
