Maybe in terms of standards, UWB may be dead, however the potential of the
technology is still there, you can get the most of it in applications of HD
video-conferencing, you can use your own HW with the right antenna, which
you can build yourself as well...there are some guys here (where I study),
that have had succesful experiences with UWB fot P2P networking...But if you
are desperate for standarization...stick to wi-fi.

And about the messages, I was talking about the messages from the hoperf
modules...not about TI ones. I think the hoperf modules allow for more open
HW stuff, as most of the TI (previously ChipCon) stuff works mostly with TI
software. Plus I think the hoperf dev kits are cheaper, if that accounts for
