In today's market, consumers are moving to wireless technologies. Wireless area networks (WANs based Wi-Fi) for connecting your computers to the Internet at your local coffee shop. Wireless low-powered networks (like ZigBee) to connect air conditioning units in hotel rooms to a main control server. Personnel area networks (like Bluetooth) to allow you to connect your cell phone to your computer. And, now Wireless USB to untether your peripherals (e.g., keyboards, mice, hard drives, etc.) from your computer.
In the real world, it's not enough for a wireless USB device or hub manufacturer to simply prove that it has correctly followed the USB-IF specification. You can never be sure what revision level of machines or subtle differences a device will have to contend with in the field. The bottom line is that you don't want to spend all of your time debugging other manufacturers' designs. But you do need to know what's out there in order to defend your own design against potential failures in the hands of real-world users, especially with an emerging technology like Wireless USB.
NTS knows from our experience that compliance does not always guarantee compatibility with other products, and you want to make sure your product is compatible with all of the USB-compliant products on the market today. To address these issues, NTS has developed the NTS Wireless USB Golden Suite that goes beyond the standard USB-IF certification. It answers the questions regarding whose fault is it, how bad is it out there, will my product perform as expected, and will it be a success or a failure.
