Ultra-wideband radio technology (UWB-RT) inherited a potential of extremely high rate of data communications, Claude Shannon discovered this in 1948 and derived the later-called-as Shannon-Hartley‘s channel capacity laws. This famous theoretical law however was not able to substantiate in practice until the development of the sampling...
