Market Research Focuses on 802.15.4 TechnologiesJanuary 20, 2009
A new market research report from Research and Markets focuses on those technologies that will help drive volume and lower chip costs for 802.15.4 components.
Wireless sensor networks are making some headway in smart energy, industrial control, and other applications through IEEE 802.15.4 technologies. While ZigBee, through its impressive marketing efforts in the US, owned the largest mind share in the wireless sensor networking space for the past several years, a whole host of proprietary software stacks are being used in applications where ZigBee is more than what is required by the specific applications. This is resulting in a large number of technologies being used for countless applications, and ZigBee usage more focused on a single, yet fast growing application-smart energy.
In addition to proprietary standards, other consortia are building industry standards on 802.15.4 for other applications, including industrial, building, and home automation. These technologies will help drive volume and lower chip costs for 802.15.4 components.
