This platform was conceived from the necessity of providing all relevant information on wireless technologies for IoT in one place. With our many years of experience in this field, we rose to the occasion and gathered numerous renowned suppliers of wireless technologies with their products and solutions, and developed a search engine that is user-friendly, comprehensive, accurate, and holistic. Through the inclusion of articles that prove the successful and innovative implementation of supplier's projects, we offer you a broad range of possibilities for your search.
Wireless technologies are mainly driven by electromagnetic waves, which are synchronized oscillations of electric and magnetic fields that propagate at the speed of light through a vacuum. The electromagnetic spectrum includes, in order of increasing frequency and decreasing wavelength: radio waves (like RFID, LPWAN, BLE, WLAN, NFC, GPS, Mobile Radio), microwaves, infrared radiation, visible light (ORM like Barcode, OCR or Biometrics), ultraviolet radiation, X-rays and gamma rays. Additionally, some technologies (SAW) work on the basis of sound – a vibration that typically propagates as an audible wave of pressure through a transmission medium such as a gas, liquid or solid.
Wireless technologies are the core of digital transformation and the foundation for the Internet of Things. They are a universal way to automatically (or manually) identify, track, and monitor (state controlling) persons or objects (data carriers) and to transfer the information to an IoT medium. Depending on the technology, the data carriers need very low (BLE) or no power (passive RFID) for data communication. The communication system is mostly unidirectional (from a person or object to a reader device) but can also be bidirectional (reading and writing).
