  4. > Progress in Short-range Wireless Communications Developments: Marketing and Technological Trends

This report reflects the progress in the development of short-range radio (with maximum transmission distance of 30-100 feet) and ultra-short-range communications devices (with maximum transmission distance of - 5-10 centimeters). The report updates and revises Practel reports issued in 2008-2012.

In particular, the following technologies and related markets were addressed:

Bluetooth (BT)
Near Field Communications
The report emphasizes one of the important technological trends: advanced manufacturing methods and microminiaturization allow the creation of multimodal devices. Such devices implement several technologies on one chipset, which effectively integrates common elements serving different radios. The report also shows the role of ultra-short-range communications: used as an independent technique or together with short-range radios.

The report contains a detailed survey of WPAN/WLAN equipment vendors specializing in the production of the discussed communications equipment.
