    A few years ago it was recognized that the vision of a truly low-cost, low-power radio-based cable replacement was feasible. Such a ubiquitous link would provide the basis for portable devices to communicate together in an ad hoc fashion by creating personal area networks which have similar advantages to their office environment counterpart, the local area network. Bluetooth/sup TM/ is an effort b... View full abstract»

    Imagine that, while on a business trip to Paris, you decide to take a few extra days to sample the city's museums. When you buy your museum pass, you are given a virtual tour guide device-a small PDA that can deliver information about specific pieces in the museum system as well as general information about the city. This device communicates via wireless networks. In or near a museum, the device h... View full abstract»

    The SWAP specification for wireless voice and data networking within the home will enable a new class of mobile consumer devices that draw from the power and content of the Internet and the home PC. If cable modems and xDSL represent the “last mile” access to the home, then HomeRFTM's mission with SWAP could be called the “very last 150 feet” within and around th... View full abstract»
