This year’s Gigabit Wireless Alliance has established the
specification of its wireless-networking technology that allows speeds of 7Gbps
rounded. The standard, which operates at 60GHz, is backwards compatible with
Purpose of the established in March this year Gigabit
Wireless Alliance is designing a universal standard for wireless networks by
using the 60GHz band. The standard is backwards compatible with wifi and
wireless versions of hdmi, display port, PCI Express, USB would also be
supported by adaption of protocol layers to use. The WiGig standard would with
handhelds, TVs, computers and set top boxes to be used, though the first products
to support WiGig expected until 2011.
The objective of the Gigabit Wireless Alliance is ambitious,
but the amount of participants in the alliance is great. Thus, Atheros,
Broadcom, Intel, NEC, Nokia, Samsung and Toshiba seat on the board of directors,
and this week there is Nvidia added. Among other AMD, RealTek, NXP and
STMicroelectronics are also participants. Another feature that would encourage
adoption of WiGig that the specification royaltie-Fri available.
WiGig The specification builds on the IEEE 802.11 standard,
but the Gigabit Wireless Alliance has no ties to the Wi-Fi Alliance. There is
also an IEEE Task Group meeting 802.11ad the specification for the 60GHz
frequency works. With the development of the technology on WiGig steam starts
to come, seem days of the competing standard WirelessHD counted. These existing
specification also uses the 60GHz frequency, but the chips are expensive and
consume much energy, while also only WirelesHD replacement hdmi cables for TVs
and set top boxes were addressed.
Earlier this week version 1.0 of the wireless home digital
interface specification for HD video wirelessly send ratified. This standard
uses the 5GHz frequency. It was also announced that the ratification of the
IEEE-802.11ac wifi, which 1Gbps speeds using the same frequency to deliver, for
December 2012 on the agenda for.
