Digitization with Wireless Technology
Wireless Technologies for the Digitisation Process
The term 'digitisation' describes a variety of strategies that lead to a digital image (digital representation) of physical information. An analogue source is turned into a computer-readable string of numbers. This process is necessary for data processing, storage, and analysis.

In the Industry 4.0, it is crucial to develop a standard format for data on carriers and within networks in order to streamline the entire supply chain and keep it transparent. Here, standards and protocols like OPC UA come into play to allow M2M communication. All sensor and reader data has to be able to be compatible with the system and capable of being processed by the software.
This combination of a software platform and system of RFID and sensor technology make applications like smart data and predictive analytics possible. This leads to smart production planning and predictive maintenance.
Advancing into a digital age
Digitisation is a business process that is supposed to increase efficiency, accessibility, and predictability. It reduces costs and wastes and minimises errors. Without digitisation, companies cannot accurately respond to the needs of the market and its customers and business operations cannot be as complex as they might need to be. Labour has to be distributed differently and people are required to change the way their work for progress to occur.
