Wireless Connectivity Technology Jumps Past the Early Adopter Phase, Finds New WTRS Report

Share Article

WTRS Wireless Connectivity Technology Trends report analyzes the market growth and adoption, volume and pricing forecasts and standards bodies activities in WiFi, Bluetooth, UWB and related technologies. The report tracks the activities of standards bodies such as the WiMedia Alliance, Bluetooth SIG, WiFi Alliance and WirelessHD. The Wireless Connectivity standards activities are organizing around unique target application segments.

This approach invariably leads to standards groups competing for newly-identified large potential target applications. Wireless connectivity standards today are shifting from being in competition with one another to coexistence that signals the start of real and significant market adoption for products utilizing wireless connectivity technology.

The latest WTRS Wireless Connectivity Technology Trends Report examines the market potential, effectiveness of existing technologies and components, global & regional market trends & forecasts, outstanding regulatory issues, progress of de facto standards development, regional economic effects, and strategic developments of market makers. The report includes a thorough evaluation of emerging "Wireless Connectivity" technologies including applications of Bluetooth, millimeter wave wireless, UWB, and IEEE 802.11n.

"All too often standards groups formed around newly-developed wireless protocols adopt the task of identifying new applications and markets in addition to codifying a standard," says Dr Kirsten West, Principal Analyst of WTRS." This approach invariably leads to standards groups competing for newly-identified large potential target applications. Wireless connectivity standards today are shifting from being in competition with one another to coexistence that signals the start of real and significant market adoption for products utilizing wireless connectivity technology."

Wireless Connectivity is the mechanism for utilizing wireless technologies as the underlying platform to deploy networks for data and multimedia content delivery over distances confined to 30 meters. Examples of technologies and protocols included in the "Wireless Connectivity" area are applications of Bluetooth, UWB (including DS-UWB from GiT and others, CW-UWB from PulseLink, and MB-OFDM UWB from the WiMedia Alliance), millimeter wave wireless from SiBeam, the IEEE 802.11 family, and IEEE 802.11n.

The WTRS Wireless Connectivity Technology Trends Report findings include:
(1) How does the addition and integration of WiFi to Bluetooth enable WiFi to penetrate the mobile phone market more strongly?
(2) What is the analysis of Wireless Connectivity use cases by technology?
(3) Who are the Certified Wireless USB radio chipset companies capable of addressing the regulatory requirements of the global market?
(4) How do the Certified Wireless USB I/F, WiMedia Alliance, Bluetooth SiG, WiFi Alliance, and WirelessHD compare?
(5) Why is the Wireless Connectivity standards shifting from antagonistic to coexistence strategies?

The results are based on discussions with executive management from major participants in the marketplace, as well as WTRS proprietary macroeconomic research tools.
