Abstract

As demand for portable multimedia content continues to grow, challenges arise in getting the desired content to/from a mobile device. The speed at which multimedia content must be moved is dependent on both the size of the data to be moved and the method of transfer. There are a wide range of emerging wireless applications which will require Gbps transfer speeds. Examples of such applications, including streaming of uncompressed high definition video, will be discussed. In addition, a number of application drivers beyond real time streaming have been identified with wireless standards being developed to meet these needs.

Title:
"Application Drivers for Gbps Wireless Communications"

Business problem:
Users of wireless services typically expect wireless speeds to be a reasonable percentage of the wired speeds they are accustomed to. Wired speeds have moved well beyond 100 Mbps with Gigabit network interface cards now common components in PC's and Laptops shipping today. In the mobile world, the demand for multimedia content and its portability continues to grow. Since the introduction of the first wireless device decades ago, the demand for increased bandwidth has never ceased. The questions are which applications will drive the need for Gbps wireless communications, how quickly is the technology needed, which devices require the capability, and which wireless standards will address it.
