There are some basic differences between Wireless USB from the use of the 60 GHz band as promoted by the Wireless Gigabit Alliance. At 60 GHz, radio communication can be blocked by any object in between, hence the term line-of-sight, which means an unimpeded line of sight. Wireless USB, on the other hand, is based on the UWB platform. This operates in the 3.1 to 10.6 GHz frequency range, and thus can pass through obstructing bodies.
