Short Take: IBM to ship infrared networking tech

IBM announced it will soon ship infrared technology that allows businesses to network their office without any wires. IBM is working on a new chip, transceiver, and software that allows devices, such as laptops, PCs, and cell phones, to communicate at a distance up to 5 meters. Previous infrared technology was limited to a meter. The product, which supports the new Advanced Infrared connectivity standard, will ship in the third quarter.
