Top 10 Wireless Technology Companies - 2019

Fast, secure Wi-Fi is what every business wants and needs today. With continual enhancements to wireless networking standards and technologies, speed and security concerns related to wireless solutions have been abated. Today, wireless technology plays a key role in communications, and new forms of it will gain importance in emerging technologies such as drones, robots, self-driving vehicles, and medical devices in the upcoming future. The long time wireless medium Wi-Fi has continued to be the primary high-performance networking technology for homes and offices. To blanket homes with wireless coverage, wireless solution providers have designed mesh Wi-Fi systems that are made up of several networking components that are all part of a single wireless network and share the same SSID and password. These systems are geared towards users with little or no technical knowledge and can be installed within minutes.

With a plethora of devices connected to Wi-Fi networks, from laptops, tablets, and smartphones to printers and home assistants, internet of things (IoT) became a reality. Being a widely diverse and multifaceted realm, there is no one-size-fits-all communication solution for IoT. The latest phenomenon in IoT is low power wide area networks (LPWANs), a family of technologies purpose-built to support large-scale IoT networks sprawling over vast industrial and commercial campuses. LPWANs can connect every existing IoT sensor, facilitating a bevy of applications from remote monitoring, smart metering, and worker safety to building controls and facility management.

When it comes to reliable wireless communication, cellular networks are well-established in the consumer mobile market. As 5G cellular systems are starting to be deployed, cellular next-gen 5G with high-speed mobility support and ultra-low latency is positioned to be the future of autonomous vehicles and augmented reality. Cellular network providers are exploring 5G to enable real-time video surveillance for public safety, real-time mobile delivery of medical data sets for connected health, and several time-sensitive industrial automation applications in the future.

A key trend in the wireless universe is the capability of wireless communication systems to sense the locations of the connected devices in their network. Wireless solution providers are designing cost-effective, high-resolution wireless location solutions that can simultaneously track thousands of devices from within the WLAN infrastructure, with high-value asset tracking, IT management, and location-based security features. Customers benefitting from this solution include government organizations and enterprises in the healthcare, finance, retail, and manufacturing industries.
