Continuous Expansion of Wireless Capabilities

Feb. 28, 2024
Control explores the evolving landscape of wireless technology and its implications for various industries.

Recently, a Control columnist discussed the newer updates in telecommunications standards, particularly Release 18 by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), which introduces advancements such as enhanced energy efficiency, air-to-ground networks, satellite access and system support for AI and machine learning-based services.

These updates are crucial for automation and control systems, as they offer improved connectivity, data processing and privacy enhancements necessary for efficient operations. Moreover, it outlines the upcoming features in Release 19, including support for service robots, uncrewed aerial vehicles, integrated sensing and communication and ambient power-enabled IoT, all of which have implications for automation applications.

Furthermore, Control explores the competition between Wi-Fi 7 and 5G technologies, both aiming to address high-bandwidth requirements in congested areas. It discusses the potential integration of time-sensitive networking (TSN) in Wi-Fi 7, making it suitable for applications with stringent latency requirements, such as automation systems.
