HomeRF wireless networks gain speed

Author: JT Smith

PCWorld: "HomeRF-based wireless networking technology, which is playing catch-up with archrival 802.11b standard, moves a key step forward with the announcement of
the first shipping products to match 802.11b's 10-megabits per second speed.

Proxim's Symphony HomeRF, announced on Monday, is the first product line to support the HomeRF 2.0 standard. That spec offers speeds of up to 10 megabits
per second, more than six times the 1.6-mbps limit of previous HomeRF products. Proxim's new products should deliver real-world throughput on a par with that of
802.11b networks, which have a theoretical maximum of 11 mbps."
