Japan-based Y-E Data Inc. is the first company to announce a commercial application for ultrawideband technology.

Assuming that there are no obstacles between your computer and the hub, the device has a bandwidth of 100Mb/s at 10 meters. The wireless output level is lower than -41.3 dBm, and the device uses a frequency channel from 4.224 to 4.752 GHz.
