Proprietary industrial wireless technologies offer a number of very compelling advantages over other standardized wireless technologies. If you ever wanted to have a more reliable Ethernet connection that could guarantee every single data packet getting through your network then proprietary networking could be your answer. Wireless standards are typically developed by multiple companies and suffer due to compromises that are made to accommodate all parties involved in the standards process. The right answer is to maintain your focus and create solutions that address your networking issues and concerns. Industrial wireless networks have very different requirements due to the robustness, reliability and continuous operation that is typically required. Through customization of over the air communications and through manipulations of Ethernet packet definitions, a proprietary solution can provide the exact solution your industrial network needs. This “top 10” list shows a number of the advantages proprietary wireless technologies has over more common standards based technologies.
Wireless technology has shown dramatic expansion. And with this the usage of 2.4 GHz frequency has also increased. Many technologies like wireless LAN, Bluetooth technology and many more operate in 2.4 GHz band. It offers robust wireless solutions and is also one of the popular wireless networks. It lets the sender and receiver lock-on to the same frequency, ensuring smooth data transmission. There are a number of advantages of tuning in to 2.4 GHz frequency.
