Radio Frequency Hardware Technologies
While direct Ethernet connectivity is always an option for fixed (i.e. non-mobile) devices, it is rarely practical, which means that connectivity is largely provided wirelessly for all applications. The hardware technology to use usually depends on the amount of data that needs to be transmitted, the distance involved, the environment and on the amount of power available at each end. Here is a selection of technologies employed by mSemicon:
