The demand is growing for most applications to move to wireless communication. The benefits are reduced
costs and easy implementation. Wireless communication does not require cabling and other hardware, and
the associated installation costs. It can also be implemented in locations where installing cable is difficult.
Since the IEEE released the Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN) specification (IEEE 802.15.4?) in
2003 and onwards, it has become the real industry standard for low-rate WPANs (LR-WPAN). The specification applies to low-data rate applications with low-power and low-cost requirements.
