Applications of Wireless Smart Sensors networking penetrated both commercial and military sectors; several years ago military applications prevailed but currently the commercial segment is progressing very fast. Such applications as Smart Grid-Home Area Networks and other pushing Wireless Smart Sensor networking to its limits, requiring to build networks with many thousand nodes, as well as to develop smaller networks in very high volumes. The report analyzes Wireless Smart Sensor networking from both positions: manufacturer and end-user. Technological and marketing trends are presented; the report contains important information, which can help a wide audience of engineers and researches to determine their position on the discussed subjects.

Research Methodology

Considerable research was done using the Internet. Information from various Web sites was studied and analyzed; evaluation of publicly available marketing and technical publications was also conducted. Telephone conversations and interviews were held with industry analysts, technical experts and executives. In addition to these interviews and primary research, secondary sources were used to develop a more complete mosaic of the market landscape, including industry and trade publications, conferences and seminars.

The overriding objective throughout the work has been to provide valid and relevant information. This has led to a continual review and update of the information content.

Target Audience

This report provides WSS technologies and markets analysis and assessments; it concentrates on the recent developmental trends. The report is useful for service providers, retail operators, vendors, network operators and managers, investors and end users seeking to gain a deeper understanding of WSS-based structures opportunities and barriers.

For systems integrators, the report provides an analysis and assessment of competing products currently available as well as an estimation of the overall opportunities in the coming years. The end users can gain a more thorough understanding of product’s market and capabilities as well as the economics.
