Wireless Connectivity Type Insights

Based on Type, the global Wireless Connectivity market is segmented into WLAN, WPAN, Satellite and Cellular M2M.

A wireless local-area network (WLAN) is a group of colocated computers or other devices that communicate via radio waves as opposed to traditional connections. Anyone accessing a WLAN, or wireless local area network, while reading this page is doing so while online. Devices connected to a wireless local area network (WLAN) do so without wires. As a result, local networks may be installed in buildings like homes and offices without the need for Ethernet connections. WLANs are not limited by the physical port capacity of the router and can serve dozens or even hundreds of devices. One or more repeaters can be rapidly added to a WLAN to extend its range.

The acronym WPAN stands for wireless personal area network. WPAN is actually a PAN (Personal Area Network), where the connected devices are placed all over the user's workspace and connected through wireless technology. For this reason, it is often referred to as "person-centered short-range wireless communication". The normal range is about 10 metres, which is a very little distance. "Plugging in," which defines how close WPAN-equipped devices interact with one another as if they were linked by wire, is one of the essential concepts of WPAN. WPAN connection requires minimal to no infrastructure, in contrast to WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network), where infrastructure deployment is essential.

Wireless Connectivity Applications Insights

Based on the Application, the market has been classified into Healthcare, Public safety, wearable devices, energy, automotive, consumer electronics and others.

As healthcare evolves, hospitals and clinics employ new technologies to improve patient care, increase patient accessibility, and save costs. Hospitals tracked portable devices like EKG machines, defibrillators, and X-ray machines for many years using Wi-Fi technology. Hospitals now have new alternatives for delivering patient care and reaching their overall goals thanks to the development of 4G and 5G mobile cellular technologies as well as new IoT devices and apps. Procedures, patient safety, and health may all be improved via the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT). For instance, there are now continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) devices that enable patients with diabetes to check the level of glucose in their blood on a daily basis. Specific CGM systems can use IoT technology to send patient data to their mobile devices.

Public safety networks are specialised wireless communication systems that may be used in emergencies. They are crucial for enhancing communication between first responders, firemen, and emergency staff. Perhaps most importantly, they are required by law in many different countries around the world. Fires, accidents, natural catastrophes, and unlawful situations are dangers to public safety that might impair in-building communication. In these circumstances, a working, effective public safety network could save lives. The public safety frequencies utilised in the US span from 30 MHz to 150 MHz, 450 MHz, and 800 MHz when compared to cellular DAS. Responders also use land mobile radio (LMR) phones, which have a transmission power level that is substantially higher than that of standard cellular handsets (between 3 and 5 watts).
