IT and OT Suppliers Converge in the Dynamic Wireless Access Points Space

Wireless communications play an important role in connectivity-driven digital transformation architectures.  Customers and solution providers look to wireless to meet escalating requirements for connecting mobile, remote, and rotating assets as well as inaccessible data from a growing number of connected sensors and devices.  Industrial and outdoor wireless access points (WAPs) allow Wi-Fi client devices to connect to a wireline, typically Ethernet, industrial network. 

The value proposition for wireless technology is increasing with the new Wi-Fi 6 standard and pending 5G introduction both promising step increases in reliability, speed, bandwidth, latency, and security.

Both industrial and outdoor WAPs are increasingly incorporated in digital transformation architectures at the IT and enterprise levels.  Wireless applications on the OT side tend to be more solution-specific due to the primary requirement for reliable transmission.

Use of wireless is always driven by the requirements of the installation, but IT suppliers are bringing their wireless solutions under the umbrella of their pervasive infrastructure strategies.  This includes industrial IoT-related capabilities in areas like cloud management, SDWAN capabilities, AI, and edge computing.
