Wireless network technologies are positioned perfectly to have a major impact on component development for emerging innovations and their applications. These products could range from drones to robots to AI driven vehicles to modern medical devices. Keeping track of these emerging wireless networking technology trends that are always evolving fast is fun and keeps product designers on their toes – to enable them keep pace with the competition.
Here’s a look at some of these emerging innovations in wireless technologies:
This technology operates at frequencies ranging from 30-300 GHz with wavelengths ranging from 1-10mm. Though it remains largely unused, millimeter waves technology is applicable in wireless systems such as Wi-Fi as well as 5G spectrum for high bandwidth and short wave communications. With traffic volumes increasing, expect to see a demand for spectrum with drivers being services like point-to-point and point-to-multipoint, within the coming years.
Suitable applications will be in the wide-ranging fields of medical diagnostics, smart homes, etc. Wireless signals find use in sensing applications such as in indoor radar systems for drones and robots or even as virtual assistants for improving performance when a number of people are speaking within the same room.
One-stop Wireless Security
As a facility, wireless security service is still an emerging technology. Considering the fact that the range of potential threats will always remain high, an end-to-end cloud service appears to be the best way to counter this challenge. Even though vast progress has been made, much more still needs to be done. Every organization need to have a solid and supported security policy.
Wireless Location Tracking
Enhanced wireless communication systems with the ability to sniff out the locations of the devices connected to them are currently trending. Emerging innovations are expected to lead to high-precision tracking of within a one meter accuracy using the IEEE 802:11az standard. These are expected to be a part of future 5G features. Benefits of this would include lower power consumption and hardware cost along with improved performance and precision.
This technology transfers data with minimal power consumption and targets small network devices such as IOT-enabled smart home devices. Such applications are appropriate in areas already saturated with wireless signals.
