Communication Gateways

Many factors must be considered when designing a WiFi or ZigBee enabled device. Typically, these devices need to interface with multiple protocols, security access points and network data. Protocol management and translation may be required if a communication infrastructure in one part of the network is not compatible with the communication infrastructure in a separate part of the network.

When designing these devices, Jabil’s expert design engineers take the following into consideration:

  • Types of protocol the device will interface with
  • Security
  • Data rates
  • Number of nodes in the network
  • Ability to configure the device for scalable or flexible deployment
  • Ease of deployment
  • Cost
