Mountain View, CA, United States, 2010/11/22 - A WTRS updated report evaluates evolution of market requirements creating opportunities for the many WSN Components using 802.15.4, EnOcean, Bluetooth Low Energy, Dash7, Wavenis, Low Power Wi-Fi, and ZigBee chipsets. Report includes 5 year forecast.
The updated study, “WTRS Wireless Sensor Network Technology Trends, Q4 2010”, reviews and analyzes the available and proposed technology solutions competing for dominance in the wireless sensor network segment and the emergence of newly defined market requirements.
“WSN technologies are becoming available in more useful forms than simple protocol specifications and chipsets”, said Kirsten West, Principal Analyst with WTRS. “Modules are becoming more sophisticated and more capable of meeting the demands of a broad market opportunity. A broad majority of the market opportunity for wireless sensor networks exists in applications that represent smaller individual market volume, not worth the development costs entailed in producing a chip for many of the large semiconductor manufacturers.”
The WTRS Wireless Sensor Network Technology Trends Report analyzes and forecasts the market for wireless sensor networks. The report includes a thorough evaluation of emerging Wireless Sensor Network technologies and associated software including ZigBee, Bluetooth Low Energy, Wavenis, IEEE 802.15.4, Low Power WiFi, EnOcean, and others.
