Hesh Kagan says it is better to be a WINA than a loosa.

Kagan, with his usual dry wit, explained what WINA, the wireless industrial networking alliance, is about, what it does, and what its mission is. "Our mission is to promote the adoption of wireless technologies and solutions that improve the efficiencies, production and safety of industrial manufacturing and processes," Kagan said. We provide a forum for industrial wireless technology education. Check www.wina.org for current activities, such as support and development of SP100, educative webinars and seminars, wireless best practices, and interoperability and co-existence demonstrations. Kagan introduced Dick Caro, Control's wireless guru and reporter, and luminary in the fieldbus and wireless fields.
