NetGear and Bluesocket are both building Propogate's AutoCell technology into their gear: Propogate's software adds some RF management capabilities to APs and, in Bluesocket's case, to gateways so that APs don't interfere with each other and thus offer better performance. Some say that with Propogate's software and products like Bluesocket's gateway, enterprises won't need to invest in WLAN switch gear. Some also say that Propogate's software may allow some companies to get out of the proprietary AP business.
The WLAN switch vendors are seeing a lot of pressure from products like Propogate's that may be built into low-cost APs. If all the functionality is built into APs, the need for the switches is reduced.
