Waves are getting closer to getting the first wave of real-world tests and data, as more broadband is being tested for safety and compatibility with the new wireless technology.
A review of the technology’s safety features by BT, the broadband company behind BT’s own QX wireless and QWAN, was released this week.
The BT review found the new technology is safe for use on the NBN’s copper network, but could still cause problems for some users.
“In terms of the safety of the product, we are confident that the safety issues will be resolved in a timely manner,” BT said in a statement.
It added that the device was currently being tested by customers and operators to ensure it is compatible with their needs.
The company’s review said it could work in a range of environments, but noted that it could also work well in “non-network environments, including those with weak or intermittent network support”.
The review also noted that a device like the BT Wave can be used on existing copper network infrastructure, but said there was “no evidence of any harm from this approach”.
It also noted there was no data yet available from consumer reviews on the device.
The new wave is not yet commercially available and only about 1,000 of the devices have been tested.
It is expected that all will eventually be deployed.
However, in the meantime, there are still many questions around the safety.
Some experts say the technology could be a bit more reliable than what is currently on the market, as the network could be less likely to fail or become unresponsive, or there could be more data being collected and stored.
The FCC has yet to approve the wave technology for use in Australia, and it’s unclear whether the regulator will approve any of the new devices.
The FTTP (broadband to premises) standard is still being developed, with its next major release expected next year.
This is the latest round of tests and studies looking at wave technology.
As part of the tests, BT has been testing the new wave technology with customers.
In its review of its own device, BT said it was “not yet ready to release the final version of our device, but we are working with a number of manufacturers to ensure the wave-based wave technology meets our needs”.
“We are continuing to work closely with our customers to ensure we deliver the best product for them.”
The wave technology is similar to that that used in wireless networking equipment, and is being deployed in many new wireless routers and connected devices.
It also has been tested in the TV, home entertainment and mobile markets.
However the wave is much more complicated than Wi-Fi, and requires more complicated software and equipment than that of Wi-FI.
It can’t be used in areas where it can’t connect to the internet.
The wave is more complex because it has to be able to connect to a specific location on the network and then use a special transmitter to send the signal to that location.
The device needs to be placed into the correct position on the local network and connected to the device at the correct time.
The devices that are being tested are currently being used in home entertainment systems and connected with a wireless router.
In other words, it is the device that is being used that will be tested.
“We will be testing the wave for the first time on the main broadband network of our NBN service providers,” BT spokesperson Jenny Smith said.
“This is part of a new wave of tests to make sure our products work in all situations.”
The BT Wave is currently being test on a range a range and is expected to be deployed across the NBN rollout, with a final version to be ready by the end of the year.
