Wi-Fi is about to lay claim to a new frequency band that could result in speeds at least 10 times faster than what’s currently available.
An agreement between the Wi-Fi Alliance and the Wireless Gigabit Alliance will let the Wi-Fi Alliance carve out specs and standards to support Wi-Fi operation in the 60-GHz frequency band in a bid to make Wi-Fi faster. By contrast, Wi-Fi today operates in the 2.4-GHz and 5- GHz bands.
Specifically, the move to 60 GHz could allow for speeds in the range of 1 gigabits per second to 6 gbps, in contrast to today’s theoretical maximum of 150 Mbps for 802.11n.
“The 60 GHz is like a beam of light — you have to have line of sight — but you can get multi-gigabit point-to point networking speeds with it,”
Wouldn't a "repeater" only work as a reflective surface such as a mirror? You would have to have perfectly angled mirrors placed around corners and stairways.
even in an open office space one would need to get rid of obstacles like cubicle walls etc. I wonder how they're proposing to tackle this
Sounds like a great solution for college and work campus settings.
