Abstract
This Phase II proposal outlines a development plan for a low-cost Wireless LAN system to address the need for reducing wireless signal degradation associated cost to meet the modem NAVY shipboard communication requirements. AEPTEC has concluded from the Phase I of the work that Ultra-wide band (UWB) and SoftRadio are two prominent technologies could affect WLAN design most in terms of achieving maximum performance and low cost objectives. The primary objective of the Phase II is to propose a UWB architecture that is superior to and also consistent with the technology of the IEEE 802.11 WLAN. Therefore, the architecture will support both the coexistence and the compatibility of various network functions and services thus to maximize the return on investment (ROI) and to minimize the total cost of ownership (TCO) for customers. The proposed architecture will include the UWB Access Point (AP) and UWB Client, which will coexist with other ISM band wireless technologies, and UWB, Bluetooth, and 802.11a/b/g Clients at both Basic Service Set (BSS) and Independent Basic Service Set (IBSS).
