On 1 November, 2017, IEEE releases the IEEE Technology Report on Wake-Up Radio. There has been an unprecedented amount of interest in this report, primarily because it solves a very real problem facing the Internet of Things: conserving battery life while maintaining high performance in Internet of Things devices over wireless networks. Technology companies and professionals that are developing Internet of Things devices that will run over 802.11 (Wi-Fi®) networks understand that what they will learn in this report is essential if they want their devices to be competitive in the white-hot Internet of Things market.
“IEEE Wake-Up radio is an add-on to the existing 802.11 radios that substantially improves power-saving performance of 802. It removes the need to compromise between power savings and latency. This makes the technology suitable for a new class of battery-powered devices. I’m excited to see what innovative applications emerge,” said Adrian Stephens, IEEE 802.11 Working Group Chair.
The report covers many of topics essential to IoT developers, including:
- How IEEE Wake-Up Radio works
- Economic impact
- Market opportunities
- Use cases and challenges
- A comparison of IEEE Wake-Up Radio to other technologies
- Specification framework
The result is a significant increase in battery life, which will have huge impacts on the types of IoT devices that can be developed, along with the environmental impact and use cases of those devices (and their batteries.)
“Energy conservation is a critical requirement for the billions of future networked devices exclusively dependent on battery power with a target operational lifetime in excess of five years. These devices will make up a substantial fraction of the Internet of Things market. IEEE 802.11ba aka Wake Up Radio is a key enabling energy conserving technology for the markets they will serve. This insightful report has been crafted to help you understand the potential of the technology and market,” said Paul Nikolich, Chair IEEE 802.
