WideBand Corporation was created to develop, manufacture, and market a line of high performance networking products based on the WideCast channels technology, which Roger Billings invented and patented several years ago. While WideBand networking equipment is compatible with conventional Ethernet equipment, it has the advantage of very low latency. In fact, latencies on WideBand concentrators are two orders of magnitude lower than competing Ethernet switches.
“If you need really fast and wide communications between servers and workstations, look into WideBand. There is nothing like it. My point is that clearly Dr. Billings, who began in CP/M days just as I did, has great technical expertise in data networking.”
