As building automation and information technology converge, wireless technology is offering a range of benefits for commercial buildings, notes Navigant Research. According to a new report from the firm, shipments of wireless control nodes for commercial buildings will grow from 12.9 million in 2014 to 57.4 million by 2023.
Wireless technology is now entering the mainstream of the commercial building controls market, according to a new report from Navigant Research. While building automation and controls have been used for decades, wireless enables control without the design and labor challenges involved with running traditional wiring.
The EnOcean Alliance announced the availability of a new line of energy harvesting wireless modules communicating on the 902 MHz band for the North American market. The line increases effective radio frequency range, enhances resistance to interference, and simplifies product development due to shorter antenna lengths.
The wireless sensor network market, led by ZigBee, grew ten-fold from 2007 to 2010 and exceeded 45 million annual shipments in 2011, according to ABI Research. Strong growth is expected for 2012 and beyond, said Peter Cooney, wireless connectivity practice director for the firm.
