New 2.4Ghz Spec Offering 55Mbit Throughput

The 802.15 camp (Bluetooth) has just drafted a 2.4-GHz specification that offers 55-Mbit/second throughput for Multimedia use in the home (WPAN). They promise all the speed of IEEE 802.11a, quality of service, security and the (heh-hem) low price of Blue Tooth. They claim a range of 100 feet. Its intended use is to replace the wire clutter in home theater applications.
