The article reports on the development of Ultra Wide Band (UWB) as of June 2004. The next generation of high-speed wireless, UWB provides blistering transfer rates of up to 480 megabits per second (mbps). Wireless Fidelity aficionados have nothing to worry about. The highest rate of UWB works only within 3 feet. At 30 feet, throughput drops to about 110 mbps. Nevertheless, UWB could become a building block of several new, limited-range standards such as Wireless USB and the next generation of Bluetooth. Eventhough UWB is currently embroiled in an industry standards battle, backers hope to solve all legal and technical issues by year-end. That would clear the way for early products such as set-top boxes that send signals to TV and digital cameras, equipped with UWB, that transmit images wirelessly and quickly.
