Alereon has introduced its new Ultra Wide Band chipset that can transfer 1GB data wirelessly in less than 30 seconds at The 2nd International ComBCon (Communication and Broadcasting Convergence Exhibition & Conference).
That means that with Ultra Wide Band technology, you’ll get Wi-Fi transfer speed of 480 Mbs. Compare that to 802.11g’s theoretical transfer of 55 Mbps. Looks like Wi-Fi could catch up to wired networks soon (currently at 1000 Mbps).
The chip is small enough to be used in mobile gadgets and will be presentd at CES 2006.
