The article reports on the results of an e-mail survey conducted by "InTech" on the perception of automation professionals about wireless technology. According to the survey, 81 percent said they are happy with the reliability of their wireless system and 82 percent said they are happy with the security of their wireless system. The main area of concern about wireless are reliability, security and power. Sixty-seven percent indicated that they had a combination of hardwired and wireless communications at their facility, 26 percent had hardwired and only 4 percent had wireless. Among the wireless technology that the respondents plan to use include IEEE 802.15.4--2006, IEEE 802.11g and IEEE 802.11b.
