Home Wireless Networking Gets High Speed Upgrade
NEW YORK (Reuters) – The HomeRF standard for wireless technology that lets a household’s electronic gadgets communicate with each other, has received an upgrade that will make it work 10 times faster and could help it survive in an increasingly crowded field for home networking technology.
My spin: I talked with an exec from Agere’s wireless neworking brand, Orinoco – and they are using the WiFi wireless standard, as opposed to HomeRF. With these two competing standards, I wonder where this leaves consumers? INTEL is backing WiFi, as is 3COM and CISCO and many others (DELL, IBM, etc). However, according to the NY Times articles this speed upgrade for HomeRF puts it into direct competition with WiFi. More on Orinoco later on!
