A new Wi-Fi tech unveiled by Samsung is five times faster than today’s wireless networks and will be available in 2015.
Samsung claims to have developed a 60GHz Wi-Fi technology that will enable data transmission speeds of up to 4.6 Gigabits per second (Gbps).
Samsung expects commercialization of the new Wi-Fi band spectrum as early as next year.
But Kim Chang Yong, head of Samsung’s DMC R&D Center, says:
“The company has successfully overcome the barriers to the commercialization of 60GHz millimeter-wave band Wi-Fi technology.
Unlike the existing 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi technologies, Samsung’s 802.11ad standard 60GHz Wi-Fi technology maintains maximum speed by eliminating co-channel interference, regardless of the number of devices using the same network.”
