TP-Link has been named the world’s largest supplier of wireless local area network (WLAN) products for the 23rd consecutive quarter.
This means that the home, small, and medium business networking solutions company has sold more WLAN products than any other company since the fourth quarter of 2010.
According to the International Data Corporation’s (IDC) worldwide quarterly WLAN tracker, TP-Link consistently ranked as the world’s largest supplier of WLAN products in the second quarter of 2016.
It accounted for 41.2 per cent of all WLAN product shipments, which was a significantly higher share than its nearest competitor.
TP-Link says this achievement highlights its continuous top-of-the-class sales performance. The first quarter of 2016 saw TP-Link lead its rivals with a 45.9 per cent share of the global WLAN market.
Andy Chen, vice president of TP-Link International, commented: “Wi-Fi has transformed work and leisure time. TP-Link provides high-quality devices that meet people’s growing technological needs.”
A statement from the company added that its range of wireless access points provide some of the most versatile and cost-effective solutions for small and medium-sized businesses on the market today.

This summer saw TP-Link introduce a new product called the Talon, which is the world’s first router to include Qualcomm's 802.11ad technology for blisteringly fast connection speeds.
The Talon AD7200 multi-band Wi-Fi router brought new, robust capabilities of 802.11ad to the market by delivering ultra-fast speeds of up to 4.6Gbps on 60GHz bands.
It uses a new frequency with untapped bandwidth and channels at 60GHz, and utilises existing 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, resulting in combined unprecedented 7Gbps Wi-Fi speeds throughout the home as well as combines 802.11ad with 802.11ac MU-MIMO to provide a step up in capacity.
This means that consumers can download an entire feature-length 4K HD video in about four minutes or transfer a thousand photos to a storage device in approximately five seconds, without any concerns about network interference.
