'Uncertainty Ahead'

Cisco's share in the enterprise worldwide wireless LAN market dropped nearly 2 percent in the first quarter of 2017, while competitors including Ubiquiti Networks and Huawei gained a few points, according to new data from research firm IDC.

The combined consumer and enterprise WLAN market generated $2.15 billion in sales for the quarter, down roughly 1 percent year over year.

"A soft start to 2017 suggests uncertainty ahead for the enterprise WLAN market," said Nolan Greene, senior research analyst, network infrastructure, at IDC, in a statement. "While digital transformation projects and scheduled refreshes bode well for the rest of the year, economic concerns and geopolitical risks in certain segments may temper growth in 2017."
