Ultra-Wideband (UWB) Explained (and why it's an exceptional connectivity experience)

October 29, 2020


Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology has the unique ability to deliver unprecedented accuracy and security when measuring the distance to a target or determining position, transforming the way people experience connectivity. Computerworld recently said that “One way to think of it is as a radar that can continuously scan an entire room and precisely lock on to an object like a laser beam to discover its location and communicate data.”

Today’s use cases for UWB technology, including hands-free access control, location-based services, and device-to-device applications, offer unique capabilities to deliver compelling new experiences that will help UWB become an essential technology for future connected devices.

This webinar detailed what UWB technology is and how it works and presented a practical example of how the use of UWB can support a hands-free access experience in which an authorized user is granted access through a controlled portal without intrusive actions while maintaining or improving the level of security.

• What UWB technology is
• How standards are being developed and applied to the technology to allow for interoperability between ecosystem providers
• How UWB technology will be implemented in physical access control systems to facilitate hands-free access control
