Ran across a interesting article globetechnology.com had. The article described that UWB or ultrawideband could become the next standard for WiFi networking technology and the FCC is making the steps to set this standard.

A little from the article:
One barrier that has held back the much-hyped convergence of the computer and consumer-electronics industries has been the tangle of wires that is needed to connect the array of home video, audio, Internet and game gadgets.

Now the drive to unwire the living room is about to get a push.

In March, the Federal Communications Commission took a significant step toward breaking an industry deadlock over setting a single standard for a new wireless technology called ultrawideband, or UWB.

While traditional radio technologies have transmitted and received analogue signals only on specific frequencies, UWB uses inexpensive computing power to send short radio pulses across much of the radio spectrum. Because it does not use a single frequency, UWB offers several advantages, including the capacity to send high volumes of information quickly, and the ability to share frequencies and resist interference. It's like breaking a truck's cargo into loads small enough to be carried on bicycles that can weave through a traffic jam.
