The need for higher data rates in wireless communication systems and the lack of available frequency space has led the researchers in developing new technologies, such as UWB. Ultra-wideband systems utilise signals with very short duration and very large bandwidth, from which the benefits are twofold; more information can be exchanged and coexistence with narrowband technologies is possible, as such systems perceive UWB as noise and interference is thus avoided. The increased bandwidth offers multipath resolution, which when properly treated can enhance system's performance and reliability. Signal distortion however, may prohibit system's optimum performance.
