Ultra wide band (UWB) is the radio technology that is used for conducting large quantity of digital data over a wide-ranging scale of frequency bands with very low power for a short distance. While in acting in the same frequency band, ultra wideband do not get distracted by carrier wave transmission as well as conventional narrowband. It carries a property to transmit the enormous amount of data up to 230 feet at the very low power which range less than 0.5 MW. Ultra wide band (UWB) is usually compared with other short distance wireless technology such as Bluetooth as well as with long distance wireless technology that is Wi-Fi.
Ultra-Wideband (UWB) Market: Market Dynamics and Restraints
Majorly, due to the growth in healthcare and retail sector is directly driving the market of Ultra-wideband (UWB) market globally.
