Market Opportunity: Super WiFi

WiFi has enjoyed steadily increasing demand for new uses and applications and it is prepared to explode again, but not in its traditional forms. It has developed into a mature technology but has suffered from shortcomings, such as limited range, that have become more noticeable as new demands have been placed on the technology. One potential solution to the increasing demands is “Super Wi-Fi”, sometimes referred to as “Wi-Fi on steroids”. Super Wi-Fi makes use of “white spaces” in the unused spectrum TV spectrum.

The present Wi-Fi market includes millions of chips and products in homes, enterprise solutions by companies such as Cisco and service providers with solutions by companies like Motorola. The opening of TV White Spaces has created opportunities for all these companies. While it isn’t the only white space solution, Super Wi-Fi has much of the early mover advantage.

This report evaluates Super WiFi technology, various companies supporting it, solutions, and provides a future outlook.

Target Audience:

  • WiFi service providers
  • WiFi infrastructure providers

General Methodology

Mind Commerce Publishing's research methodology encompasses input from a wide variety of sources.

We rely heavily upon our Subject Matter Experts (SME) in terms of their market knowledge, unique perspective, and vision. We utilize SME industry contacts as well as previous customers and participants in our market surveys and interactive interviews.

In addition, we rely upon our extensive internal database, which contains modeling, qualitative analysis, and quantitative data. We review secondary sources and compare to our primary sources to update previous findings (for prior version reports) and/or compile baseline information for technology and market modeling.

We share preliminary models with industry contacts (select previous clients, experts, and thought leaders) to verify the veracity of initial modeling. Prior to final report production (analysis, findings, and conclusions), we engage in an internal review with internal SMEs as well as cross-expertise, senior staff members to challenge results.

We believe that forecasts should be prepared as part of an integrated process which involves both quantitative as well as qualitative factors. We follow the following 3-step process for forecasting.

Forecasting Methodology

Step 1 - Forecasts Input: The inputs for the present and historical revenues are derived from industry players. Financial and other quantitative data for individual sub-market categories are derived from original research and tested with interviews with major industry constituents.
