ITS America's first wireless report examined how next generation 4G cellular (wide-area), and nomadic wireless such as Wi-Fi (local-area) and Dedicated Short Range Communications (vehicle-area) will evolve and possibly support a number of vehicle applications.

This report investigates how heterogeneous mobile broadband networks, or “hetnets” will come about, and how they might enable wireless interoperability of next generation vehicle/road infrastructure applications.
