Bluetooth SIG and UWB Align Efforts for Ad Hoc Connections

The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) agreed to align its long-term roadmap with developers of Ultra-wideband (UWB) technology. The goal is to work towards an architecture that allows devices to take advantage of UWB data rates for scenarios that require high speed. Bluetooth would maintain backward compatibly with existing devices on the market and future products not requiring the higher data rate.

"The Bluetooth SIG's intention to employ UWB in their next generation products is a very positive step in allowing consumers to connect seamlessly between PCs, phones and consumer electronics equipment. This is an extremely positive move," said Stephen Wood, UWB technology strategist, Intel.
