Wi-Fi deployment in enterprises helps them to reduce the cost of network wiring, enables easy and quick maintenance and support of the entire network, provides mobility to the employees, and gives boost to the concept of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) in the work environment. However, in residential premises, installing the wireless access point converts the premises into a Wi-Fi zone and offers seamless connectivity in the entire house for all the smart devices. Major restraint in deploying Wi-Fi is lack of security over the network.

MarketsandMarkets broadly segments the global Wi-Fi Market by regions: North America (NA), Asia Pacific (APAC), Europe, Middle East and Africa (MEA), and Latin America (LA); by business models: indoor Wi-Fi, outdoor Wi-Fi, and transportation Wi-Fi; by products: access points, WLAN controllers, wireless hotspot gateways, and others (repeaters, relays); by services: network planning and design, installation, support, and survey and analysis; by industry verticals: education, healthcare, infrastructure, logistics and transportations, public sector, and hospitality.

MarketsandMarkets forecasts the global Wi-Fi Market to grow from $ 12.89 billion in 2014 to $ 26.19 billion by 2019. In terms of regions, North America is expected to be the biggest market in terms of market size, while Asia pacific and Latin America are expected to experience increased market traction during the forecast period.

Dr. Leslie Kaye, Psychologist Specializing in Starting Over, Starts Over with Historic 1850 Cadieux Farmhouse

Grosse Pointe, MI (PRWEB) July 09, 2014

The Cadieux Farmhouse is the last remaining example of French frame architecture from the ribbon farm era, built by Detroit’s French Canadian settlers, the Cadieux family.

Today, July 9, 2014 9am to 11am, you will see it slowly roll down the streets of Grosse Pointe to it’s new home. Beaumont Hospital Grosse Pointe needed to move the historic home to make room for it’s expansion. French and English speaking psychologist Dr. Leslie Kaye ( was midway through an around the world trip when she heard about the home. She visited Tahiti, Moorea, Hong Kong, Cambodia. Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Russia, Turkey, Kenya, South Africa, Argentina, and Brazil 2013-2014. “Still, there is no place like home!” she says. “This little house has completely captured my imagination and has done my heart so much good! It gave me a reason to come home.”

In 2009, Dr. Leslie Kaye had it all: a Ph.D. from the University of Southern California, a McGill Montreal General internship, a two year Harvard Medical School fellowship. Over seven years she built a booming psychology practice and the hospital she worked with wanted to triple it. She had several college teaching gigs. She was President of Detroit’s International Institute Board of Directors, had a yacht at the Detroit Yacht Club that she had once lived aboard, and owned a large riverfront home in Windsor that she loved. But when the man she loved proposed, asked that she come away with him to Florida, and promised that she never had to work again, she left to do volunteer work with her church and marry.

But in 2014, she needed to start over. “Rebuilding is hard. I’ve helped many clients start over. But this time it was me.”
