When designing products relying on wireless communication, reliability of the communication link is important. There are many factors influencing the quality of the link, and thereby the likelihood for successful delivery of payload data. Multiple wireless technologies exist which are marketed for many different applications – IoT, Industrial IoT (Industry 4.0), Wireless Sensors etc..
These technologies are all claiming to be the optimal solution for almost any application out there. However, not many are highlighting the actual performance when it comes to payload data delivery reliability. This whitepaper provides details into the parameters to consider when selecting wireless technologies from a reliability point of view, and how to achieve cable-like reliability in a wireless connectivity solution.
