UWB Technology Value Proposition
UWB is a revolutionary radio technology that uses wide bandwidth signals to achieve the fastest wireless data rates in the industry. It has fundamental advantages over conventional wireless communication systems, providing many times the speed of today's 802.11 networks while using merely one-tenth the power. In fact, the Certified Wireless USB application of UWB technology achieves data rates and plug-and-play capability equivalent to the industry standard wired USB 2.0.Regulatory bodies around the world have placed stringent demands on UWB technology, particularly with regard to RF design. To date, only one company, Alereon, ships a UWB radio that covers all the frequencies required for global operation.
