Archived report. This report was archived in 2010 and has not been updated since. Around the world, WiFi has established itself as the quiet achiever in short-range wireless broadband and in 2010 there is evidence emerging that the use of WiFi hotspots is on the rise due to increasing popularity from smart phone users. WiFi offers a faster and in some cases, cheaper, alternative to mobile networks. The recent introduction of WiFi Direct has increased the competition between it and another short-range wireless technology – Bluetooth and its latest release Bluetooth 3.0. In the midst of short range wireless technologies there is also Ultra-Wideband (UWB) which has struggled due to competition and lack of applications. UWB chip manufacturers have now turned their attention towards the wireless HD connectivity sector. This report provides a broad global market overview of the short-range technologies WiFi, Bluetooth and UWB.
