    Dual Band Gets Its Due

    In 2015, dual-band Wi-Fi will become ubiquitous. ABI Research predicts that 72 percent of Wi-Fi devices sold this year will operate in both 2.4 and 5 GHz. Consumers are beginning to take advantage of the increased capacity of dual-band networks as they adopt more demanding applications, like Ultra HD and 4K TV, and to support a growing number of devices on the home network.

According to the Wi-Fi Alliance®, a global non-profit industry association, 2014 was a monumental year for Wi-Fi -- the wireless technology celebrated 15 years, carried more than 42 percent of the world's mobile data traffic and 90 percent of the world's tablet traffic, and connected users to more than 47 million public hotspots worldwide. Wi-Fi is on a path to provide seamless Wi-Fi virtually everywhere, and is pushing the limits of what wireless technology has traditionally offered.

With input from representatives from our member companies, Wi-Fi Alliance® has developed a list of 15 predictions for the coming year that prove Wi-Fi has evolved into much more than a mode of connectivity to the Internet.
