WiGig Specification Complete

Ainsley Jones

The Wireless Gigabit Alliance has completed its specification for a 60GHz technology that supports data transmission rates of up to 7Gbps, promising a wireless speed boost between mobile phones, PCs and televisions. The specification, called WiGig, delivers more speed than the recently ratified 802.11n standard, reports TweakTown.


WiGig, which supplements and is backwards compatible with 802.11 standards, could be useful in home office setups. Ratification for the spec is expected in April 2010, with compatible products expected to roll out in 2011, according to Rethink Wireless.
