The wireless market space refers to bidirectional communications technologies of two rather distinct sorts:

  • Mobile communications on licensed frequencies over intermediate to long ranges with a central broadcast tower, including
    • Cellular technologies, such as those used by cell phones
    • WiMAX and related wide-area network technologies
  • Wireless networking on unlicensed frequencies over short distances (a few hundred feet) to s local access point, commonly found in laptop computers and smart phones.

Wireless convergence is the idea that devices with wireless communications capabilities should be able to work with all available telecommunications technologies seamlessly.

Some other technologies which do not have wires are nevertheless not generally part of the "wireless" market space. These include:

  • Cordless telephones and personal area networks such as Bluetooth, which are ultra-short-range
  • broadcast television and radio (which are not bidirectional)
  • Point-to-point wireless links, which may provide telecommunications backbones to remote areas where running cables would be prohibitive (these are typically managed by a regional service provider, and seldom are marketed as an end product).
  • Inductive charging devices (for charging mobile devices without cords)
