WLAN in the home

In-Stat, the market research firm that does a pretty decent job with identifying and describing digital entertainment and mobile communication trends, has a press release pointing to one of their recent reports about WiFi in the home. According to the press release:

Some of the research findings include:

  • Digital TVs will reach a 40% WLAN-attach rate by 2015
  • In 2014, mobile hotspots will have an 802.11n attach rate of 98%
  • Over 28 million WLAN-enabled Blu-ray players will ship in 2013
  • The 802.11ac standard will achieve an attach rate in mini-notebooks of 23% in 2015

WiFi is becoming not just a way to connect but as an enabler of hybrid peer-to-peer networking.  Undoubtedly we’re going to be seeing more and more devices tied to a router that can find the internet and each other and do things automatically or on demand.  It will start slowly but I’d guess we’re going to see a proliferation of apps for devices and ways of manipulating devices through I/Os provided by other devices so device specific human interfaces won’t be needed.  Interesting times.
