Wireless Connectivity

Research Service

Many wireless connectivity technologies are highly complementary and are seeing rapidly increasing adoption in many different product types. At the same time, the most ubiquitous and entrenched technologies – Wi-Fi and Bluetooth – are stretching their use-cases, working faster, using less power, and working in new modes. They will increasingly compete with traditional, more complementary technologies.

As markets collide and applications blur, technology footprints from solutions such as 802.15.4, Zigbee, NFC, GPS, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, 60GHz, UWB, Bluetooth Smart, and Bluetooth Smart Ready overlap and it is inevitable there will be consolidation around dominant standards in selected applications.
