Forecast: Explosive Growth In Wireless Apps

Quick ROI and efficiency improvements spur wave of wireless implementation in manufacturing sphere.

A new report from West Technology Research Solutions (WTRS) forecasts explosive growth in the adoption and deployment of wireless solutions in manufacturing.

"Research indicates that companies can recognize up to 30% to 90% reduction in operating costs by simply wirelessly enabling a process," says WTRS president George West, who reports that he's seen ROI achieved in as little as 90 days. The WTRS report identifies other conclusions relevant to American manufacturing, including:

  • The industrial sector is likely to undergo workflow churn as wireless applications increase the safety, reliability and efficiency of industrial facilities.
  • Module and development kit pricing is dropping while functionality is increasing.
  • Frequency agility requirements are driving evolution toward industrial standards.
