Huge processes like globalisation, global economic growth, global population growth, technological and IT development obviously result a dramatically growing demand for network systems. Some of the publications are already predicting to exist at least 50 billion devices connected via several types of networks by 2020. Most of these are going to use wireless accesses. The next phase of the industrial development will be the Industry 4.0 and one of its success criterias will be the topic of the communication of the devices connected via networks. Devices communicating with each other can possibly deliver great opportunities for the future regarding automation, cost saving and increasing the efficiency of the industrial processes as well. Just imagine, for example in case of the supply chain management, how significantly can the warehouse distribution processes (like material retrieval, distribution into locations, electronic documentation) be accelerated by partially eliminating the human work force and replacing it with the devices (in the current subprocesses) communicating more efficiently with the devices from the logically sequential subprocess without any size constraints. Starting, interrupting and finishing processes would be more efficient as well and, at the end of the day, these would result remarkable cost savings and profit growth for the investors and consumers. After all, it clearly seems, that there is an enormous industrial (and of course business) demand for these network solutions, but at the same time, the handling of hundreds of endpoints in one zone is still a great challenge to manage. To solve this problem, the goal can not be else but to find a simple telemetry capable of ensuring a smooth and similtaneous operation for at least a few hundred of devices.
