ABSTRACT
The article focuses on wireless technologies and devices that use licensed internet connectivity. It states that in 2013 less than 2.5 billion devices will be sold that have license-exempt technologies which will not have Radio frequency identification (RFID) chips. It mentions that to enable this to happen a wireless technology standard has been proposed which will use white space to have data exchange between several computers and base station.
