The objective of the GigaRadio project is to develop underpinning radio technology for Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPANs). WPAN technology is already familiar as Bluetooth® technology used for short range wireless connection of computers and peripherals. In the consumer domain the technology will enable the distribution of high definition video content around the home, connecting high definition video players with displays. The technology will also allow the rapid transfer of vast amounts of data for file sharing or for the purchase and downloading of digital movies at kiosks in the retail environment.
