Wireless communication in tough, demanding applications is nothing new. Wireless has been used for more than 30 years through the use of proprietary radios. However, with the modernization of industrial networks and the emergence of different Ethernet protocols, there has been an increasing demand for standardized wireless technologies. During the last 10 years, standards like Wireless LAN (IEEE 802.11) and Bluetooth technology (IEEE 802.15.1) have become the dominating wireless technologies. In 2011, Bluetooth low energy technology also entered the scene. This whitepaper compares the wireless technologies available so you can find the solution that fits your application the best.
