Techopedia Explains Ultra Wideband

In terms of using ultra wideband effectively, distance must be factored in. This is not a particularly long distance transmission model. Practical applications include radar and certain types of voice and data transmission that are intended for a restricted range or territory. Military and government installations have used ultra wideband models, and some companies have used ultra wideband in medical devices, especially where these medical devices are only going to be used within a short range of other transmitters or receivers. That short range use is a major characteristic of technologies that use the ultra wideband transmission method.
