8. Enterasys Networks
Enterasys Networks, acquired in September by Extreme Networks, claimed the No. 8 spot on NPD's list, with a 2.4 percent share of the total AP units sold.
When Extreme announced plans to scoop up Enterasys last year, it was Enterasys' robust wireless portfolio that Extreme saw as a game-changer for both itself and its partners. Enterasys has a full lineup of both indoor and outdoor wireless APs, including the IdentiFi AP3715, a 900-Mbps AP with redundant data ports and multiple power options, features Enterasys says make it ideal for high-density environments like conference venues or hospitals.
