Analog Devices introduces new RF circuit for short-range wireless systems

2.4 GHz ISM band RF transceiver supports industrial, science and medical applications

Business Wire

Semiconductors manufacturer Analog Devices, Inc., and provider of RF ICs (radio frequency integrated circuits), is offering an RF transceiver targeting short-range wireless systems in the global 2.4 GHz ISM (industrial, science and medical) band.

The transceiver supports the IEEE802.15.4 standard and may be used to implement solutions based upon protocols such as Zigbee IPv6/6LowWPAN, ISA100.11a and Wireless HART, as well as offering the flexibility to implement proprietary FSK-based protocols with data rates of up to 2 Mbps.

Bread & butter for CSPs may need some restocking

With messaging in high demand, carriers are forced to consider network investments

Messaging and SMS are not typically considered major sources of bottlenecks or capacity management issues. But the diversity of networks that support messaging and growing competition over high-use subscribers may force operators to consider near-term investments in their network stacks to protect the long-term investment they already have.

When Tekelec recently published its white paper, "MM3.0: the Future of Messaging," it challenged service providers to consider requirements evolving through 3GPP, and to be prepared for these challenges.

New decade, new horizons for the communications industry

New concepts bring great opportunities

So here we are in a brand new decade; in many ways, escaping from the “Noughties” won’t be all bad for the communications industry.
