Wireless for Government Operated Industrial Networks
Today's wireless technologies have radically increased the options for connecting devices and applications in operational or industrial environments. As a result, government agencies must now carefully consider the technology best suited for their end-users without making compromises on IP networking, cybersecurity, automation, and performance.
In this paper, we will focus on high-throughput, highly reliable technologies, namely Wi-Fi, 5G, and Cisco Ultra Reliable Wireless Backhaul (Cisco URWB). We’ll also introduce LoRaWAN, a relatively new wireless protocol purpose-built for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. These technologies provide valid alternatives for many use cases, so clearly differentiating between them is essential.
