Connect Your Life
The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the most exciting waves of innovation the world has witnessed, and its potential has only just begun to emerge. This marked transformation in how devices and people use connectivity is happening before our very eyes, as more and more devices and objects are enabled with Wi-Fi® and other technologies to connect to one another and larger networks.
The economic potential of the Internet of Things is boundless, presenting a vast range of opportunities across a variety of sectors of the economy. Consumers will use smart home and automotive applications to monitor, protect, and control their home environments, to maintain their health, and to stay connected to home and work when on the go. Enterprises and small businesses alike will drive new efficiencies into their operations and develop entirely new business models enabled by IoT applications. Governments will collect revenue and monitor mission critical transit, public safety, and sanitation systems. Industrial and commercial facilities will improve their efficiency through IoT applications, benefitting consumers worldwide through lowered prices and better service. In the developing world, Internet of Things applications have the potential to raise standards of living by improving healthcare delivery and sanitation, enabling quick disaster response, and much more.
Wi-Fi technology is ready today to connect billions of IoT devices to each other, to the internet, and to the billions of consumer electronics and computing devices already in use. Wi-Fi’s security, interoperability, and longstanding commitment to legacy interoperability make it an ideal platform for innovation – unlocking the limitless potential of the Internet of Things.
Enhanced power efficiency
With the Internet of Things era in full swing and the era of hyper connectivity approaching, smaller devices are connecting to each other and to the internet. These devices require long battery life.
Wi-Fi Alliance has introduced power saving features that enable devices to benefit from native connectivity to Wi-Fi networks and the internet without concern for power consumption. Wi-Fi power saving features bring longer sleep periods and reduce the need for devices to communicate with infrastructure too frequently. These features can add significant power saving in Wi-Fi enabled devices used in numerous market segments including smart home, smart city, industrial, and healthcare.
