Bluetooth SIG (Special Interest Group), the group in charge of developing and promoting the wireless technology, has committed to the WiMedia Alliance version of ultrawideband (UWB) as its future standard. This updated version of the technology should provide much higher speeds for Bluetooth – attractive for synchronising and transferring large amounts of data as well as enabling high quality video and audio applications. Bluetooth SIG and the WiMedia Alliance will jointly develop a Bluetooth solution that utilizes the unlicensed radio spectrum above 6 GHz, a move that answers concerns voiced by regulatory bodies in Europe and Asia; the first real-world products based on Bluetooth UWB should be available in 2008.
