WUSB is a high-bandwidth wireless extension for short range communication between computers, devices and gadgets.Â The WUSB specification claims a transfer speed equal to USB 2.0 of 480Mbit per second.Â Although that has yet to be seen (even with USB 2.0 wired products). The USB Implementors Forum based this wireless technology off the WiMedia Alliance’s Ultra-Wideband or UWB platform.Â WUSB will work up to 9 feet away and then slow down to 110Mbit/s with a max range of 30 feet. WUSB works on the 3.1 to 10.6 GHz frequency range and spreads communication over an ultra-wideband of frequencies.Â For this reason you will not see wireless interference between WUSB and Wi-Fi or Bluetooth wireless networks.
