Wibree is an innovative digital radio technology that can soon become a benchmark for the open wireless communication. Working almost equivalent to the bluethooth technology, this modern technology functions within an ISM band of 2.4 GHz and amid a physical layer bit rate of 1 Mbps.

Widely used in may appliances like the wrist watches, wireless keyboards, toys and sports sensors due to its key feature of very low consumption of power within the prescribed ranges of 10 meters or 30 feet using the low cost transceiver microchips, it can generate an output power ofm-6 dBm.

Conceived by the Nokia company in 10-03-2006, it is today licensed and further researched by some of the major corporates that includes Nordic Semiconductor, Broadcom Corporation, CSR, Epson, Suunto and Taiyo Yuden. According to Bob lannucci, the head of Nokia’s research centre, this groundbreaking technology that is 10 times more capable than the bluethooth technology will soon replace it. Already the corporate giant Nordic Semiconductor is working on the technology so as to bring out the model chips by the mid of 2007.
