Industry 4.0 upgrading powered by Wi-Fi HaLow
In 2021, the global Industry 4.0 market reached a value of $86.01 billion, and it is expected to reach $254.5 billion by 2028. The global Industry 4.0 market is projected to grow to exhibit a CAGR of 19.8% over the forecast period. As Industry 4.0 continues to gain wider adoption and implementation, there is ongoing exploration of various wireless network technologies.
The transformation of manufacturing processes to align with Industry 4.0 provides several benefits, including enhanced efficiency, reduced costs, and improved quality control. In the following sections, we will delve into the most recent wireless technology, Wi-Fi HaLow, and conduct a comparative analysis with conventional Wi-Fi and low-frequency long-range networks.
Wi-Fi HaLow vs. Conventional Wi-Fi 4/5/6
Conventional Wi-Fi allows users to conveniently download videos and upload files through a wide spectrum of radio frequencies, including 2.4GHz, 5GHz, and 6GHz. However, these connections have limited effective distance and can easily drain batteries, requiring daily charging or a power source.
Wi-Fi HaLow expands on the security and spectral efficiency of OFDM (Frequency Division Multiplexing, FDM) by utilizing narrower radio frequency channels below 1GHz to better penetrate materials, enabling communications to reach depths 10 times greater, cover areas 100 times larger, and encompass volumes 1000 times greater than conventional Wi-Fi. With support for over 8,000 stable connections from a single access point and new power-saving sleep modes, Wi-Fi HaLow is well-suited for IoT users.
It enables the development of new products that can operate on batteries for years while delivering data throughput of hundreds of megabits per second.
Wi-Fi HaLow vs. Low-Frequency Long-Range Networks
Wi-Fi HaLow excels in comparison to other low-frequency, long-range wireless communication systems.With its compatibility with existing Wi-Fi infrastructure, seamless integration with Wi-Fi devices,extended range, better penetration,and low power consumption, Wi-Fi HaLow offers superior performance for IoT applications. Its established ecosystem further solidifies Wi-Fi HaLow as a leading solution for reliable, long-range wireless connectivity in various industries.
In conclusion, wireless network technology plays a critical role in the development of Industry 4.0. Among these technologies, Wi-Fi HaLow stands out due to its exceptional performance, addressing not only the limitations of conventional Wi-Fi and low-frequency long-range networks but also effectively meeting the increasing demands of Industry 4.0 automation.
The growing demand for wireless networks driven by Industry 4.0 automation also presents network security challenges. However, Wi-Fi HaLow technology has undergone rigorous testing and certification following the latest WPA3 security standards, ensuring it meets the highest security standards and promising reliable and secure connectivity solutions in industrial environments. These advantages guarantee that Wi-Fi HaLow will continue to realize its potential, providing long-lasting and efficient support for Industry 4.0’s connectivity requirements.
