Connectivity is more foundational for organizations and businesses than ever before, as access to the Internet and cloud services is absolutely essential for growth and success. Demand for the flexibility and reliability of cellular broadband is on the rise, too, but has Wireless WAN usage caught up with traditional links such as DSL and wired broadband? It really has, according to the State of Wireless WAN 2022 report. In fact, the percentage of organizations that use 4G/5G for Wireless WAN increased from 41% of respondents in 2018 to 67% in 2021.
IDG and Cradlepoint collaborated on a survey of more than 700 organizations to understand how the rise of Wireless WAN (WWAN) is affecting the network composition of enterprises.
