It’s nearly impossible to consume any media about technology and not see a story about new Wi-Fi products. New use cases spring up on a seemingly daily pace, and technologists waste no time developing products to serve them. When it comes to connectivity, product designers have a range of options to choose from when developing their wireless products, and choosing the appropriate one depends on the use case.
For instance, Industry 4.0 requires an array of capabilities that are difficult to achieve with just one wireless standard, as IoT devices used in industrial applications have a wide range of requirements. For IoT, the 5G standard offers a specific radio, called NB-IoT, which narrowly defines operation low power-low complexity applications. All wireless standards are evolving to offer more capabilities.
Let’s look at 5 technology choices on the menu of wireless options, review where each is best suited and see how they compare.
