IoT or the connected systems have found applications in a wide range of areas like manufacturing, retail, agriculture and life sciences to name a few. Such systems involve capturing data from sensors, devices, and machines which is analyzed for deriving actionable insights. Most prominent ways to connect these sources of data include wired and wireless technologies.

In this white paper, we discuss some of the most important wireless technologies for connected systems. We talk about important aspects like frequency spectrum, operational range, power consumption, security, and the trade-offs to consider while selecting a wireless connectivity mechanism for a given application.
