It’s a mobile world, with almost 7 billion mobile subscribers worldwide in 2013, the equivalent of almost one device for every person on the planet. The rapid increase in mobile devices is making Wi-Fi a preferred method of network access, with the United States having more than 1 mobile device per person and 125 million smartphones shipped every year. With this growth rate, and a predicted 10 billion mobile devices by 2016, organizations can look to mobility and the Wi-Fi network to deliver innovative user services and enhanced customer experience. At the same time, this trend presents businesses with both tremendous opportunities and unique challenges, and numerous innovative businesses are rapidly emerging to help unlock business value from this growth.
