What is Broadband
Wireless? Ultra-Wide Band
Broadband wireless will revolutionize people's lives by enabling
a high speed connection directly to the key people and information
that customers want, whenever they want it. Intel believes
wireless technologies such as 3G, Wi-Fi, WiMAX and UWB will
coexist, working synergistically together to meet unique customer
needs. It is likely that no single broadband wireless technology
will become dominant or ubiquitous.
Essential Wireless Technologies:
Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPANs) are very small networks within a confined space, such as an office workspace or room within the home. Ultra Wideband (UWB) technologies, offering WPAN users a much faster, short-distance connection, are currently under development.
Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) have broader range than WPANs, typically confined within office buildings, restaurants, stores, homes, etc. WLANs are gaining in popularity, fueled in part by the availability of devices optimized for wireless computing such as Intel?Centrino?Mobile Technology.
For Personal | For Business
Wireless Metropolitan Area Networks (WMANs) cover a much greater distance than WLANs, connecting buildings to one another over a broader geographic area. The emerging WiMAX technology (802.16d today and 802.16e in the near future) will further enable mobility and reduce reliance on wired connections.

Wireless Wide Area Networks (WWANs) are the broadest range wireless networks, and are most widely deployed today in the cellular voice infrastructure although they also have the ability to transmit data. Next-generation cellular services based on various 3G technologies will significantly improve WWAN communications.
