HomeRF

HomeRF, a competing wireless standard to 802.11b, initially showed quite a bit of promise due to its multimedia capabilities. The companies that produced HomeRF equipment, however, recently decided to stop making these products.

The wireless networking standard can be used with cordless phones, since it shares the 2.4GHz band used by some cordless phones. In addition, HomeRF (Figure 5.2) is quite handy at playing multimedia, such as MP3 audio files. The networking standard gives priority to multimedia over other network communication, which helps to offer smooth playback.
