Waikoloa, HI -- The UWB Forum and WiMedia(TM) Alliance today announced that the industry will continue to grow the Ultra-Wideband (UWB) market. This statement was made in response to today's vote by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 802.15.3a task group (TG3a) members, here at the Interim Meeting of the IEEE, to withdraw the January 2003 project authorization request (PAR) that initiated the development of high data rate UWB standards.

The UWB Forum and the WiMedia Alliance issued a joint statement, "As the industry organizations dedicated to productization, we thank all contributing TG3a members and voters for their respective efforts during the past three years. However, we concur that, at this stage in UWB market development, a more prudent course of action is necessary to allow the market to move forward with the commercialization of multiple UWB technologies."

Members of the IEEE 802.15 TG3a voted yesterday to recommend dissolution of the task group. Today, the 802.15 Working Group approved a motion to recommend dissolution of the 802.15.3a project to the IEEE SA NESCOM. The TG3a's most commendable achievement is the consolidation of 23 UWB PHY specifications into two proposals: MultiBand Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (MB-OFDM) UWB, supported by the WiMedia Alliance, and direct sequence-UWB (DS-UWB), supported by the UWB Forum.
