The Top 10 Best-Selling Access Points By Brand


1. Cisco

Despite growing competition from smaller Wi-Fi specialists, Cisco maintained the top spot on NPD's list, with its APs accounting for 36.8 percent of the total units shipped. The networking giant did, however, lose a few percentage points compared to 2012, when it accounted for 39.5 percent, according to NPD.  

Cisco has a long lineup of APs, including the newly launched Aironet 700W series, which provides integrated wired and wireless support. Cisco last year also leveraged the Wi-Fi technology it gained through its Meraki acquisition to create a new cloud-based management platform and dashboard for partners.
