LONDON This year's Electronica will feature a 'Wireless Communications User-Forum' and the Wireless Congress 2006 conference. Companies in the forum include LPRS from the U.K., Radiocrafts from Norway, Omron from Japan, Wireless World from Switzerland and Amber wireless from Germany while device manufacturers supplying products for systems based on the various IEEE 802.11 standards as well as the Bluetooth and ZigBee protocols have reserved space in the traditional semiconductor halls.
The applications featured in the forum will range from toll and diagnostic systems in the automotive sector and RFID systems for the retail industry to multi-standard solutions for wireless LANs capable of being used anywhere in the world.
The Wireless Congress will be held November 15 and 16 and a similar event last year attracted more than 350 delegates from more than 20 countries. The Congress will discuss all the technical aspects of current and future wireless technologies, like WLAN, Mobile telephony, Personal networks, Industrial Radio Data and Wireless Automation, Security in Wireless Systems, RFID, NFC, Wireless sensor networks, WiMAX, UWB and Ubiquitous Computing.
