The Future of Wireless LAN in Asia

Description:    Although revenue models are still being tested and a viable public Wlan (Wi-Fi) business model has
                yet to emerge on a convincing scale, most of the major mobile and fixed-line carriers in Asia have
                begun deploying Wlan hotspots. We believe Wlan will become an important new revenue segment
                in Asia’s service market, driven by:

                - High Broadband Penetration
                - 3G Delays
                - Hybrid Devices and Business Models

                Get an understanding of where Wi-Fi development stands in Asia right now -- which countries are
                on the cutting edge and which operators appear most likely to succeed. This report analyzes Wlan
                and 3G deployments today and how operators can leverage both technologies to retain and gain
                subscribers. We include an in-depth case study of how Pccw would benefit from extensively
                deploying Wi-Fi in Hong Kong. We provide costs and revenue forecasts and illustrate the
                competitive advantage the operator would gain from such a strategy.

                This report is for vendors who need to know how Wi-Fi will develop in Asia, and what it means to
                3G operators who need to learn how to use Wi-Fi as defensive and offensive business strategies
                and consultants who want to understand current and future competitive and technological dynamics
                of Wi-Fi in Asia.
