Our main feature this month looks at DLNA. How much do you know about DLNA, and its likely impact on Bluetooth, UWB, Wi-Fi and other wireless standards? The Digital Living Network Alliance intends to go from zero to domination of the consumer connectivity sector by the end of 2008. We talk to the DLNA’s President and Chairman of the Board Scott Smyers. We also talk to industry experts to gain an external viewpoint. Some of the comments are controversial, to say the least …

During April the Bluetooth Special Interest Group’s annual event for its members – the All Hands Meeting - took place in Vienna, Austria. At this event, the SIG and its members addressed the forecast that it will ship 2 billion Bluetooth devices in 2010 – that is in one year alone. To hit that 2 billion device mark, Bluetooth has to face the ultimate challenge, which is to step into the consumer marketing environment, and to create the same levels of consumer pull, desire, and need, that firms like Apple do.

This is another video enabled issue of Incisor. We have profiled two companies this month. First, we met with RFI Wireless, a division of RFI Global Services, and discussed the complicated process of testing and approving converged wireless devices. Then we met with Icron Technologies at its Vancouver, Canada HQ in order to create a video presentation that highlights the company’s work in the USB extension market, including its latest wireless development – USB over 802.11G. Meanwhile, the Bluetooth SIG has updated the Core Bluetooth specification, and we also include a review of a lifestyle, wearable Bluetooth product, the Motorola-Burton Audex jacket. Plus, we announce an important new project for Incisor and Incisor TV – a Wireless Symposium that will take place in London during June. See page 15 for details.

Wireless USB Special Focus
Wireless USB is here and now. In order to provide a complete picture, Incisor has dedicated a special issue to Wireless USB, which has been the main focus for the WiMedia Alliance ultra-wideband companies. We enlisted the support of the WiMedia Alliance itself, and some of the leading UWB/Wireless USB companies – Alereon, Artimi, Staccato Communications, Wipro NewLogic and WiQuest Communications. All of this is complimented by Incisor’s biggest yet presentation of video material. Five short films place Incisor’s readers in front of key players in the Wireless USB and UWB industry. This material, which was captured by the Incisor TV team during the 2007 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, provides a unique insight into developments in Wireless USB.

Never let it be said that the short range wireless sector is dull. Nor that it is a stable and unchanging environment. No sooner had Incisor reported on one new wireless technology – Wibree – than another one comes along – Wireless HD – and rumours start to circulate that some things we thought to be true, are not. Read about the changing perspective for UWB, one of the most exciting technologies that Incisor has covered since Bluetooth emerged from its chrysalis.

November 2006
Welcome to the November 2006 issue of Incisor magazine. One issue dominates this month’s magazine. It wasn’t planned this way, but then we weren’t to know what was about to happen …. On the 3rd October, Nokia sent the WPAN world into a spin by publicly announcing a new, short range wireless technology that it is calling Wibree. From the beginning, it seemed that this was not only a potential rival to both Bluetooth and ZigBee, but that Nokia’s decision to announce had surprised many, and angered some. So, Incisor’s editorial plan for the month was thrown out of the window. Unlike some of the early media coverage, we have taken the trouble to talk to Nokia and many of the parties that this affects. These include the Bluetooth Special Interest Group, the ZigBee Alliance and one of the main silicon participants – CSR. We’ve also put our necks on the line and given our summary analysis (see page 7).
