Emerson and Dust Networks ally for wireless, in-plant applications
Self-organizing mesh networking is one of the most exciting innovations to come along in the process industry in over 30 years, said Steve Sonnenberg, president of Emersons Rosemount division.
Joy Weiss, CEO of Dust Networks, says. Over the next few years, we expect to see the pervasive deployment of wireless sensor networks transforming the use of physical asset information, driven by the momentum in the industrial market. This announcement reaffirms industry analyst predictions that we are rapidly moving toward an era of ubiquitous sensing.
According to Mareca Hatler, Director of Research at wireless-market analyst firm, ON World: The widespread adoption of wireless sensor networks in the industrial market is dependent upon two critical developments: high reliability levels and emerging consensus on industry standards. Complete solutions with high reliability such as Emersons Smart Wireless solutions based on Dust Networks TSMP will drive this market in to the next phase of accelerated growth.
