The unique 802.11ad WiGig standard is gaining momentum
At the beginning of this year, we heard of the first commercial products that use the new WiGig standard, which is supposed to enable the transmission of information at very high speeds for short distances, as a substitute for the transmission of all types of information.
If you wondered why all this remains to be the province of a few individuals, now we have the answer and hope for a quick change:Wi-Fi Alliance announces the launch of an official and defined standardization procedure for the new 802.11 ad communication, which will allow any chipmaker to assimilate you into its products more easily, after a period in which the union dealt with only individual and specific approval of selected supporting devices.
The new regulation is intended to make the implementation of the WiGig standard in new products and devices cheaper, simpler and faster, and similar to the familiar processes for the implementation of the WiGig standards.Wi-Fi The others - which should significantly increase the supply of naturally supporting products, as another characteristic that can be proud and marketed.
WiGig technology uses the free medium (which is not required to buy and pay for its use) at a high frequency of 60GHz to provide a large frequency range for very fast data transfer that reaches up to 8 gigabits per second, or as gigabytes per second When the built-in disadvantages are a significantly reduced ability to penetrate walls and other large physical objects and greater decay even when passing through the air, which brings the radius of effective use of technology to about 10 meters, and is highly desirable with a direct line of sight between devices.
It will not replace the devices and capabilities we are familiar with, but it may well upgrade them and complement them into a more effective and versatile media envelope, which is exactly what we mean here.
We are supposed to see WiGig first in stationary and portable computers for species, in wireless docking stations that will interface with them and integrated routers that will help at high speeds to transfer information between the supporting computers - when later also Smartphones Are supposed to have this ability to communicate at peak speed between themselves and their peers and between them and computers.
Another wireless revolution? We'll see.
