Demand for wireless networks growing

Sep 07, 2005

Demand for wireless sensor networking is growing and deployments are accelerating, according to a recently published report by ON World.

ON World's recently published report, "Wireless Sensor Networks: Growing Markets, Accelerating Demand," is based on primary research with 147 companies and includes unit and revenue forecasts on eight WSN markets, analysis and survey results on market drivers, inhibitors, current applications and adoption trends.

"At least one million Wireless Sensor Network nodes will be deployed in 2005," said Mareca Hatler, ON World's research director. "Networks with 500 or more nodes are increasing and, in several cases, thousands of nodes are being deployed per network."

ON World's research concluded that there is overwhelming demand for wireless sensor network solutions by industrial companies. Twenty-nine percent of 44 industrial companies surveyed are current WSN users, and more than 40 percent are highly likely to pilot test WSN within the next 18 months.
