Media Advisory: ITU notes explosive growth of short-range radio devices
Workshop to facilitate harmonization for short range devices (SRDs) and Ultra Wide Band (UWB)
Geneva, 22 May 2014 – ITU experts and membership along with other organizations have been studying the harmonization of spectrum usage to facilitate maximum gain and efficiency of short range devices (SRDs) for global adoption. This is imperative in order to accommodate the explosive growth and cross border proliferation of SRDs as well as Ultra Wide Band (UWB), which can allow very high data throughput for communications, high-resolution location and imaging devices. Recent studies may provide opportunities for additional global or regional harmonization to support and encourage long-term spectrum tenure for the implementation of the newest technologies and result in increased business case sustainability.
