Fixed Wireless Telemetry Forecast

New wireless revenue, without broadband -- The market potential for fixed wireless telemetry applications is larger than the wireless voice market, but the rate of adoption is much slower, reports In-Stat. The cost of service and telemetry modules that are used in applications such as utility meters, vending machines, and temporary point-of-sale terminals remain barriers to adoption, although the situation is improving, the high-tech market research firm says.

"The prospects for safety and security applications are the brightest," says Bill Hughes, In-Stat analyst. "Heightened awareness of the need for security, money from The Department of Homeland Security, and the perception of wireless technology as a good way to increase reliability will have this segment growing faster than historical rates."

In-Stat found the following:

- Each vertical has unique barriers to adoption that cannot be overcome unless the solution provider takes the time and effort to understand the vertical�s needs and issues.
- The vast majority of telemetry applications have no need for broadband wireless technologies.
- Rate plans are decreasing in price and increasing in flexibility.
