Wireless Access Points - Recent Price Trend

In the three years to 2018, the average price of WAPs has been falling at an estimated annualized rate of 1.5%. Although demand for WAPs has been increasing, which typically drives price growth, falling purchase costs, the high availability of substitutes and intense market competition have offset the effect demand has had on prices, resulting in price declines.Falling purchase costs are the most.

Wireless Access Points - Total Cost of Ownership

The total cost of ownership for WAPs is low compared to the benchmark price of the product. Buyers typically require few additional products when integrating a WAP into their networks. Thus, costs of ownership beyond the cost of the WAP stem primarily from the resources required for configuration. Once a WAP is purchased, time and resources will need to be devoted to adjust the settings to match.

About this Report

This report is intended to assist buyers of wireless access points (WAPs). WAPs translate the electronic signal from a network into a signal that the user's wireless devices can receive. WAPs use a variety of frequency bands to transmit and receive data packets within a specific area. These areas are usually named through a unique identifier, also known as a Service Set Identifier (SSID), and protected through security protocols, such as WPA-PSK. Any device with the proper networking software and Wi-Fi support can connect to a WAP, including computers, printers or phones. Typical suppliers in this market include manufacturers and wholesalers. This report excludes other networking equipment such modems and all forms of network routers and switches.
