The article informs that combining Bluetooth and ultra-wideband (UWB) wireless technologies in a common standard is to be investigated by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group together with the two industry bodies developing UWB. Adding UWB will allow Bluetooth to meet the increasing demand for higher data rates, such as needed between a digital camera and a PC. UWB is expected to benefit from Bluetooth's maturity and qualification programme. However, currently UWB faces interference issues and has no worldwide spectrum allocation yet.
