目錄

As we speak, engineers and managers alike are getting tripped up by the myriad of standards out there. This confusion can lead to ill-defined specs, unsuccessful go-to-market strategies, strained partnerships and even dissuade innovation and stagnate the market.

Our Wireless Sensor Network Report is designed to help mitigate these risks and bring clarity and insight to the market. We know from experience that a comprehensive view of the space is exponentially more valuable than simple metrics and narratives. Only by understanding the interdependencies between market size, trends, forces, competitors, applications, scenarios and opportunities, can we develop success growth strategies.

The WSN market is rapidly approaching a tipping point where many competing technology standards for wireless short-range networks are either going to converge or continue to be conflicted. Given this environment, Harbor predicts the Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) could range from anywhere between 55% to 130% over the 2012-2016 time frame. Excluding consumer short-range standards such as ZigBee RF4CE for remote controls and Bluetooth audio, this could amount to a market differential of as few as 300 million WSN connections in 2016 or as many as over 2 billion connections. Convergence and harmonization of standards would accelerate these markets to their potential scale sooner rather than later. Key related points from the analysis include:

  • Open, interoperable communications standards are why the Internet has succeeded. A unified interoperable architecture will be required for Wireless Sensor Networks to succeed in the IoT;
  • Harbor's analysis strongly indicates that Internet Protocol (IP) is becoming the dominant most viable choice to link all IoT network types, including WSN applications;
  • Because there are multiple, parallel standards competing for dominance for short-range wireless IoT networking, including IEEE802.15.4 and its many variants, proprietary standards as well as WLAN standard IEEE802.11 Wi-Fi, interoperability will be very difficult to achieve unless players quickly converge on fewer more universal standards; and,
  • Based on the research, many of the existing standards are unlikely to dominate the IoT and could evolve to become '"specialist" or niche standards because they are not capable of performing all the required network functions, including streaming data, large file transfers and messaging across the diversity of devices that require WPAN technology.

As diverse factions are promoting various competing standards - none of which were designed for the Internet of Things - they create confusion, and in order to best accelerate the market opportunity, we need clarity and candor.

Our analysis and research is focused on understanding the strategic market development implications within the emerging Internet of Things (IoT) arena as they relate to WPAN networks, including:

  • What are the requirements within the IoT arena for WSN connectivity and what will the technical features be?
  • What standards are being used today and which do we believe will be used tomorrow?
  • What will the likely timing be for market adoption of WSN technologies and which technologies will be successful? What are the significant challenges users, product OEMs, service providers and silicon players face in this arena?
  • How many WSN enabled devices will there be in each market segment using which technologies?
  • Who are the key silicon players in the WPAN marketplace and how are they positioned to engage in this enormous growth opportunity?
