Telecom report due out soon

The National Telecommunications and Information Administration will release its long-awaited assessment on the compatibility—or lack thereof—between ultra-wideband technologies and the Global Positioning System March 9.

The report will also be posted on the administration's Web site, at www.ntia.doc.gov. The assessment is one of two conducted by the NTIA, the office of the Commerce Department that is responsible for developing policy on ultra-wideband, or UWB.

The findings in the March 9 report could influence whether or not NTIA recommends that UWB technology be used in commercial products.
