As part of Starix’s portfolio of wireless technology, the company has unparalleled expertise in ultra-wideband systems, and Starix engineers have played a pioneering role in the development of the technology.

Ultra-wideband is designed to provide ultra-high data rates, unmatched by any single-antenna alternative, while using frequencies entirely disjoint from those used by regular wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) systems, and at extraordinarily low transmitted power levels of 1000 times less than Wi-Fi. This provides unique advantages for environments that cannot tolerate interference to critical co-located networks, and environments in which security and anti-jam features are paramount.

Among the notable industry highlights illustrating innovative uses of this technology are:

The GE Healthcare ‘FlashPad’ Digital X-Ray:
Adding wireless capability to its state-of-the-art series of digital X-ray detectors, ‘FlashPad’ succeeds in transferring huge data files rapidly with no impact on or interference with critical equipment and networks in a hospital environment.
