Hospitality Bounce Back Bolsters Wireless LAN Sales

September 6, 2021

According to a recently published report by Dell’Oro Group, supply constraints hampered 2Q 2021 sales of several US-based wireless LAN manufacturers which saw lower unit shipments versus the year-ago period.

“Most manufacturers reported double-digit year-over-year order growth during the first and second quarters, while component lead times lengthened. Several manufacturers reported that they were unable to fulfill orders,” said Tam Dell’Oro, Founder, CEO, and Wireless LAN Analyst at Dell’Oro Group. “I spent the past couple days searching the Internet for popular models and found many online resellers were out of stock, and some which had stock were charging premium prices, which suggests that 3Q 2021 may be a very interesting quarter,” added Dell’Oro.

Additional highlights from the Wireless LAN 2Q 2021 Quarterly Report:

Several manufacturers reported a bounce back from the Hospitality vertical sector. Two companies in particular that specialize in Hospitality applications had notable bounce-backs: Cambium Networks and CommScope Ruckus.

Sales to other verticals which have not received significant government funding, such as Retail, have also been rising.

Overall Wireless LAN market sales grew approximately 20 percent versus the year-ago period to just under $2 billion. Growth in China was four times stronger than outside China.

Peter Schuman, Sr. Director, Investor and Industry Analyst Relations at Cambium Networks noted that, "Cambium experienced strength across many verticals, including education, public Wi-Fi, and a recovery in the hospitality vertical.

In enterprise Wi-Fi, the hospitality market is recovering nicely, and we had a win at a five-star resort in Hawaii, the Halekulani, for our XV2-2 Wi-Fi 6 product. Cambium was selected for coverage of rooms, indoor spaces, and the outdoor pool areas with our new XV2-2T0. We won the deal over a larger competitor as a result of our superior total cost of ownership including our secure cloud management cnMaestro X platform, and the ability to provide a range of different use cases.

Now that the pandemic is easing in the CALA region, the hospitality industry is recovering. We are seeing extraordinary acceptance of our enterprise solutions throughout the region. Some enterprise wins include the Hotel Regatta in Cartagena, Colombia, Hotel Mocawa in Quindio, Colombia, and in the Mayan Riviera of Mexico, Tulum, two different boutique resorts Ana y José Spa and the Hip Hotel & Spa."
