CES 2014 Buzz: Ultra Low Power Wi-Fi to Drive Internet of Things (IoT) Applications

Posted by Keith Sugawara on 2014-01-16 18:50:15

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES), hosted in Las Vegas, is the venue to kick off the New Year to see the latest technology including wearable tech, 4K and OLED TV technology, 3D printers, and high-tech cars.

One of the exciting new trends that was buzzing at CES, is the continued emergence surrounding the Internet of Things (IoT).  While the term was first coined in 2009, there continues to be recognition that connecting devices to the Internet wirelessly could transform daily life.  USA Today identified “The Connected Home” as one of five trends to watch and Cisco Systems Inc. Chairman and CEO John Chambers predicted the Internet of Things would be a $19 trillion market over the next several years in his keynote address.

Missions for Wireless LAN (3)

To Be Faster – 3:  Using Millimeter Wave

Since laws hinder the use of the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, we may come up with the idea to use a totally different frequency.  It is a 60GHz band and is called Millimeter Wave.  Consecutive bands more than 10GHz have been made available on an unlicensed basis in some countries.  The IEEE802.11ad standard has been now researched and developed as the Wireless LAN in the 60GHz band.  An organization called WiGig is also promoting to standardize this frequency band at the same time.

10 Wi-Fi Predictions for 2012

Posted by Keith Sugawara on 2012-02-16 17:21:42

Wi-Fi technology has become so ubiquitous that even computer publications like PC Magazine published Wi-Fi predictions for 2012. These trends have some relevance to Silex and our customers that are looking to add Wi-Fi connectivity to their devices. My comments are in parentheses.
1. Single-band routers go obsolete (dual-band is moving from being a “niche” technology used for high reliability applications to becoming a mainstream technology required to stream video content).
2. Death of legacy 802.11x (specifically 802.11b and 802.11g).
