A new West Technology Research Solutions report evaluates the opportunity for 802.15.4, EnOcean, Bluetooth Low Energy, Wavenis, Low Power Wi-Fi, and ZigBee chipsets. The report includes a five-year forecast of dominant technologies.
The newly updated study, "WTRS Wireless Sensor Network Technology Trends, Q2 2010", reviews and analyzes the available and proposed technology solutions competing for dominance in the wireless sensor network segment.
"Bluetooth Low Energy will be a significant contributor to the overall Wireless Sensor Network market, representing nearly half of all shipments in 2015", said Kirsten West, Principal Analyst with WTRS. "Bluetooth Low Energy is designed to compete with protocols like ZigBee in applications which require infrequent and short bursts of data communication. The advantage to this new protocol is that it is totally optimized for low power battery operation."
