The Wireless 1.0 report provides a model that organizations can use to understand the importance of wireless and develop new capabilities and innovative new products and services. This report is a first attempt to treat the current set of wireless technologies as an integrated concept. We refer to this state of wireless development as Wireless 1.0 and present an integrated managerial model that includes Wi-Fi, WiMAX, RFID, and Bluetooth. A new perspective is needed for managers because wireless has the potential to disrupt existing business operations and models and also to create new forms of business opportunities and industries.
