Users Contend with Rapid Cellular Tech Evolution in Industrial Cellular Routers Market

ARC Advisory Group’s new research in industrial cellular routers shows that the beginning of large-scale 5G deployment, promise of private cellular networks, and edge computing are reshaping the industrial cellular router market. With its high speed, low latency, and massive IoT device capacity, 5G connectivity holds immense potential for industrial applications. Current deployment is small, but will expand in future years as components become more widely available and highly anticipated 5G features enter the market. Private networks are a promising technology that offer enterprises greater control over their assets and data while increasing network reliability and uptime, but adoption has been slow as users grapple with the cost and complexity of these installations. Edge computing is increasingly a part of the value proposition of the industrial edge, and the processing power and edge computing capacity of industrial routers continues to increase.

"Cellular applications are migrating beyond service to remote access and backup network failover to increasing consideration as a primary communications medium. Ongoing improvements in 5G and private wireless networks are escalating the technology’s disruptive effect relative to alternatives. Cellular is the technology of choice for enabling increasingly important applications in personnel tracking and safety, empowering the remote expert and connected worker, and reducing the need for field service personnel. Cellular technology is also well-suited for use in the growing number of mobile, remote, and outdoor applications," according to Patrick Arnold, Research Analyst and key author of ARC's Industrial Cellular Routers Market Research.
