The broadband Wi-Fi hotspot market will show healthy growth in the medium- to long-term from 2006, says analyst Infonetics Research, with integrated new services on the way to drive user demand.

Infonetics Research analyst Richard Webb, said, “Many carriers view hotspots as part of a wireless broadband strategy rather than a unique service, so the public Wi-Fi market is likely to receive extra stimulus as other wireless technologies such as WiMax and 3G gain market momentum and converge with Wi-Fi.”

Voice over IP across wireless Lans was likely to be the application that drives widespread adoption of wireless Lans throughout the enterprise, and then later in public Wi-Fi hotspots as well, said Infonetics.

Infonetics’ research shows that half of service providers will offer packet-based voice over IP services in 2006.
