Mountain View, CA, May 02, 2011 --(PR.com)-- The study, “WTRS Low Power Embedded WiFi Emerging Technology Q2 2011,” is now updated to reflect current market conditions.

“The opportunity for Low Power Embedded WiFi is substantial and eclipses that of ZigBee, given the existing infrastructure that WiFi-based networks can leverage and the lack of generalized demand for complex mesh networking among the majority of WSN applications,” said Kirsten West, Principal Analyst with WTRS. “If proponents of this WSN technology can stimulate the WiFi Alliance to place attention on the WSN sector, with sufficient marketing focus, it is quite likely that low power embedded WiFi will gain a strong and significant portion of the overall WSN market.”
