Connectivity for the Factory Floor: Opportunities and Challenges for Wireless Technologies
Wireless connectivity is a fundamental enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT) and is rapidly enabling new growth opportunities across the smart home, wearable, building automation, automotive, retail, asset tracking, and other emerging IoT markets. For industrial and manufacturing environments, while wireless technologies have made some inroads in recent years, the opportunity for wireless technologies has remained relatively small and continues to face several challenges. However, it is becoming increasingly clear that wireless connectivity solutions have a critical role to play in enabling the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) across a wide range of use cases ranging from Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) and asset tracking to industrial wearables, condition-based monitoring, Augmented Reality (AR), and robotics applications.Continue
Reports & Data
Avoiding being drowned out in the tidal wave of MWC 2019 announcements, Samsung has confirmed the recent rumors that their latest Galaxy device, the Samsung Galaxy S10, will be the first in the world to come equipped with Wi-Fi 6 technology. The smartphone will be powered by Broadcom’s BCM4375 chipset, a Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5 combo chip capable of supporting up to 1.43 Gbps data rates. The move represents another landmark in the roll out of Wi-Fi 6 technology following growing traction in networking devices at CES 2019.
Z-Wave’s guarantee of interoperability will be helpful as Silicon Labs attempts to move the protocol into wider markets that include smart homes and the IoT.

This presentation will provide a discussion around the Future of Wi-Fi, looking at the evolution of different Wi-Fi standards, new protocols, and new technical enhancements to the technology. The webinar will explore how Wi-Fi is evolving to better service existing markets and target new opportunities, through new standards such as 802.11ax, 802.11ah, 802.11ad, 802.11ay, in addition to the opportunities for legacy Wi-Fi standards. We will also cover the major drivers and challenges for each technology, in addition to providing strategic recommendations on how these new Wi-Fi technologies can best target new opportunities and drive growth.
This webinar will address the following questions:
- How quickly will 802.11ax take off?
- What is the opportunity for 802.11n looking forward?
- What role will Wi-Fi play in the IoT?
- Why has 60GHz Wi-Fi failed to gain traction to date?
- How is Wi-Fi innovating?
