SRW Tech Pushed By Smart Energy, Home Automation
The total market for open short-range-wireless (SRW) technology-based ICs (Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, ZigBee, NFC and GPS) is expected to reach almost 5 billion units in 2013 and to grow to nearly 8 billion by 2018, according to recent data from ABI Research. This includes standalone wireless connectivity ICs, wireless connectivity combo ICs and platforms with integrated wireless connectivity. Such consumer devices as mobile phones, laptops, media tablets and games consoles have been the major drivers of SRW technology growth but, as many of these devices start to peak, ABI says it will be newer apps like home automation and smart energy that will be the major growth areas during the next 10 years.
 
2013: The Year Of TD-LTE?
Global Information (GII), in partnership with research firm Analysys Mason, finds that next-gen wireless tech darling LTE will have limited economic impact until services and devices are available competitively. As such, the firm sees this year as key for time-division, long-term evolution TD-LTE deployments, and traditional frequency division (FD) operators could use TD-LTE as an opportunity to create market segmentation. TD-LTE support is provided by all major equipment vendors, it adds, and device support is expected to increase significantly in 2013 as networks are launched in China, India and the United States. More than 180 operators are planning to deploy TD-LTE networks, with China Mobile taking the lead.
