Wireless Gigabit Alliance Steps Up
Via IDG News:
The group developing a super-fast wireless data technology that can transmit data up to 10 times as fast as today’s fastest Wi-Fi published its initial specification on Monday and named Cisco as the latest backer of the technology.
The Wireless Gigabit Alliance has been developing the technology, dubbed “WiGig,” for a year. It will use unlicensed spectrum around 60GHz and should be able to attain transmission speeds of around 6Gbps when in use.
On Monday the group published a specification for the technology, which includes support for tri-band devices that maintain compatibility with current Wi-Fi devices that operate in the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency ranges.
