Whitecap(TM)2, the Cirrus Wi-Fi certified IEEE 802.11b wireless networking technology, will be available for Motorola’s EVr-8401 Enhanced TV Viewer, beginning in 2002. The Motorola EVr-8401 wirelessly connects to either a Motorola DCT5000 family advanced-interactive digital set-top or a stand-alone cable modem for an "always-on" high-speed broadband connection.
