Overview

The proliferation of WiFi both at home and at work has created over-saturation of WiFi spectrum, even while bandwidth needs explode as streaming video dominates the network. This combination of crowded WiFi spectrum and increasing bandwidth need has led to frequent performance degradation for the average consumer. Alereon’s ultrawideband (UWB) solutions provide a means of escaping this vicious cycle. UWB covers much more spectrum than WiFi does and avoids interference from WiFi, Bluetooth, and every other widespread wireless technology. This massive bandwidth coupled with quiet radio signals allows UWB to provide guaranteed bandwidth even in dense configurations such as offices and apartments. See below some of the many consumer electronic solutions Alereon enables.

Overview

Wireless medical devices are the future in medicine as medical practitioners seek to eliminate cables. Not only do cables present a snag hazard, they require expensive and time-consuming sterilization procedures after treatment of each patient. As WiFi has found heavy use in hospitals as a LAN network, over-saturation of the WiFi spectrum is causing WiFi-based medical devices to experience frequent performance degradation that can put patients at risk. Alereon’s ultrawideband (UWB) solutions are perfectly suited to address this dilemma. UWB covers much more spectrum than WiFi does and avoids interference from WiFi and every other widespread wireless technology. This massive bandwidth coupled with quiet radio signals allows UWB to provide guaranteed bandwidth in hospital environments. See below some of the many medical solutions Alereon enables.

Overview

The U.S. military is seeking to eliminate cables carried by soldiers and used in soldier vehicles. Not only do cables present a snag hazard, they add to pack weight and require setup on every use. Wireless technologies such as WiFi and Bluetooth do not meet the combination of bandwidth, low probability of interference, and low-probability of detection required for combat use. The government has selected ultrawideband (UWB) as the wireless technology of choice for eliminating cables on soldiers and in soldier vehicles. Alereon’s UWB technology covers much more spectrum than WiFi does and avoids interference from every widespread wireless technology. This massive bandwidth coupled with quiet radio signals allows UWB to provide guaranteed bandwidth even in dense configurations such as soldier squads, while minimizing an adversary’s ability to detect the signals. See below some of the many military solutions Alereon enables.
