The newly released WTRS PC Computing Application Report examines the market potential, state of the involved standards bodies, effectiveness of existing technologies and components, total addressable market of the applications, and relative attractiveness of emerging wireless technologies.

The development of UWB standards is now moving faster on an international scale than ever before. The events of the last year, which included the solidification of the Certified Wireless USB I/F as well as the abandonment of UWB by Freescale, have settled the question of a UWB standard in the US. What and Who are obvious to the industry observer, the only variable at this point is When.

"Certified Wireless USB stands to rescue the digital camera and page printer markets from overall market decline," says Dr Kirsten West, Principal Analyst of WTRS. "The strength of this dominant form of Ultra Wideband lies in its ubiquitous following in the PC Computing sector, which promises strong adoption in PCs, laptops, hubs, and dongles that will offer new product innovation opportunities over the next 9-24 months."

The PC Computing Application Report from WTRS uncovers:

(1) The relative market adoption of Certified Wireless USB, Bluetooth,

802.11b, 802.11a, 802.11g, 802.11b/g, and 802.11a/b/g, and 802.11n.

(2) Analysis of adoption drivers for emerging wireless technologies in the PC Computing market.

(3) An analysis of the impact of evolving regulatory allowances for UWB in key areas around the globe.

(4) The dynamics of the existing PC Computing applications and the future of Intel, based on its current strategies and the general state of the market.

(5) Dominant use cases for emerging wireless in PC Computing applications.

(6) Risks associated with the release of pre-standard IEEE 802.11n products to the integrity of the IEEE.

(7) The impact of the integration of emerging wireless technologies, such as Certified Wireless USB, on end product markets.

"Device2Device Wireless" is defined as systems which utilize wireless technologies as the underlying platform to deploy networks for data and multimedia content delivery over distances confined by 30 meters. Examples of technologies and protocols included in the "Device2Device Wireless" area are both "Wireless Connectivity" and other applications of UWB (including DS-UWB from Freescale and others, CW-UWB from PulseLink, and MB-OFDM UWB from the WiMedia Alliance), Bluetooth, the IEEE 802.11 family, and IEEE 802.11n.

Using only publicly available information, meticulously gathered from public patent sources, company information, and other research utilizing WTRS’s proprietary macroeconomic analysis process, this report is truly an invaluable resource for any company participating in the Telecom sector, or planning a potential entry into this market.
