UltraWideBand nodes and chipsets to grow at 400% between 2005 and 2008

With the high-bandwidth gap left by Wi-Fi in the home networking space, UWB is seen as the wireless technology that can deliver the bandwidth and QoS that many consumer electronics companies have been looking for to enable sending multiple video streams throughout a home. UWB supporters have been working toward a standard, and commercial solutions, since the FCC allowed its use in February 2002.

With the high-bandwidth gap left by Wi-Fi in the home networking space, UWB is seen as the wireless technology that can deliver the bandwidth and QoS that many consumer electronics companies have been looking for to enable sending multiple video streams throughout a home. UWB supporters have been working toward a standard, and commercial solutions, since the FCC allowed its use in February 2002. With UWB's perceived ability to fill the high-bandwidth gap left by Wi-Fi in the home networking space, UWB node/chipset shipments will experience an emerging market compound annual growth rate of over 400% from 2005 to 2008, according to InStat.
