Cisco's Aironet wireless technology, which enables wireless high-speed connections to the Internet, won a top industry award in February when it was given Network World's "World Class Award." In picking Cisco over other competitors, Network World noted that Cisco's Aironet 340 series equipment "delivered the best mix of performance and manageability."
Cisco's technology was cited for its ability to support the needs of large businesses and campuses. "Among the vendors we tested, only Cisco has access lists large enough to comfortably support an enterprise-sized network." Cisco in January announced that Microsoft and the University of North Carolina had deployed Aironet products on their campuses.
The wireless Local Area Network (LAN) market is a multi-billion dollar opportunity for Cisco. Revenues are projected to triple from $774 million in FY99 to 2.2 billion by December 2001. Cisco has a tremendous opportunity to gain a significant share of this growing market.
