Bandspeed, Inc., a broadband technology company, delivers transceiver
solutions for reliably connecting the broadband edge. Its proprietary signal processing
systems for interference mitigation and signal recovery facilitate broadband deployment
Bandspeed provides Adaptive Frequency Hopping (AFH) technology that enables Bluetooth
devices to coexist with wireless LANs. Bandspeed's AFH technology has been adopted
by the IEEE 802.15.2-working group as the recommended approach for Bluetooth coexistence
with 802.11b wireless LANs. Working with Open Interface, Bandspeed's AFH solution is
a low-complexity co-existence technique which will allow Bluetooth and 802.11 radios to
operate simultaneously in close proximity or even within a common module. This
development promises to be good for both Bluetooth and 802.11 - without co-existence
solutions mutual interference could have threatened the market success of both.
Hardware and software implementations of AFH are currently under development by both
Mobilian is a wireless systems company that designs and develops embedded
software, analog & digital integrated circuits
TrueRadio system is
a multi-standard wireless solution that integrates Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technologies into a
cost-effective, two-chip solution. The TrueRadio system provides simultaneous operation of
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The TrueRadio system comprises 4 parts: an analog chip (TrueRadio
Analog MN22100); a digital chip (TrueRadio Digital MN12100); firmware and host software,
containing the drivers needed for different operating systems; and a production-level
configuration, monitoring and diagnostic tool. Click here for

Current Bluetooth related products include:
PX20 is an access point which combines both Bluetooth and WLAN into a single
device. It thus enables users of Bluetooth-devices ( such as handheld computers,
smart phones and industrial devices) to access the Internet or intranet networks wherever
they may be installed - eg in coffee shops, hotels, airports, offices or at home.
Features including the abilities to synchronise e-mail and files, access streaming
media such as video and radio, network games or manage personal businesses. A white paper
on the PX20 can be found by clicking

Red-M was founded as an internal start-up of Madge Networks N.V. and is focused on
enabling Bluetooth and internet technologies for mobile data, voice and video services in
Genos is a architecture and suite of
wirelessware products that provide the underlying technology to enable the advanced
capabilities of wireless networking to be implemented combined with the ability to manage
and maintain security and specificaly permits integration between Bluetooth and 802.11
Based in San Diego, Silicon Wave designs and produces RF communication system
components including baseband, radio modem and software solutions for Bluetooth wireless
Silicon Wave and Intersil have developed Blue802 technology, a
real-time communications interface at the MAC layer that is transparent to the notebook PC
or portable device user. Data can be transmitted without interference while optimizing
system throughput, range, and responsiveness. This enables Bluetooth applications such as
mouse, keyboard, printing, file transfer and portable device synchronization to run at the
same time the user is connected to the network over Wi-Fi (IEEE802.11b).
Reference Design features Blue802 technology and combines both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
wireless functions on a single mini-PCI card. The reference design allows OEMs to quickly
bring mini-PCI cards to market at a lower cost than implementing separate modules. The
reference design allows both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi radios to share the same PCB, host
interface and antennas, saving integration and material costs. Incorporating Silicon
Wave's Bluetooth qualified SiW1700 series and Intersil's PRISM® 3 chipset featuring
direct conversion technology, the reference design is optimized for low cost and high
SuperBT Canada, Inc
SuperBT develop and sell wireless access points as well as Bluetooth USB adapters.
Wireless Access Point
SBT-2000 provides wireless access to the internet from Bluetooth and 802.11b devices.
The network cable connection will be shared by wireless clients.
WNI creates wireless solutions to enable people to communicate
Universal Access Point (UAP) delivers all the features and functionality of BlueLAN.
It is designed to simultaneously support both Bluetooth and 802.11a wireless connections.
This will allow high speed data and video connections to mobile devices. The UAP will
support routing and firewalling to both wired and wireless devices. Since Bluetooth and
802.11a occupy different frequency bands, there are no interference issues.
