The study, “WTRS Wireless Sensor Network Technology Trends, Q4 2010”, now includes coverage of the Dash7 protocol.
“The strengths of the Dash7 protocol include its reliance on an international standard, use of the 433 MHz frequency that enables international operation and longer range than its competition, and its design for lower power operation than many of its competitors”, said Kirsten West, Principal Analyst with WTRS. “Given the serious interest and participation by key players in several commercial markets as well as the technical capability of the protocol, it is likely that Dash7 will penetrate markets currently the target of other WSN technologies and could displace a good portion of its competition.”
The WTRS Wireless Sensor Network Technology Trends Report analyzes and forecasts the market for wireless sensor networks. The report includes a thorough evaluation of emerging Wireless Sensor Network technologies and associated software including ZigBee, Bluetooth Low Energy, Wavenis, IEEE 802.15.4, Low Power WiFi, EnOcean, and others.
