WiGig and IEEE 802.11ad - For multi-gigabyte-per-second WPAN and WLAN

  title={WiGig and IEEE 802.11ad - For multi-gigabyte-per-second WPAN and WLAN},
  author={Sai Shankar Nandagopalan and Debashis Dash and Hassan El Madi and Guru Gopalakrishnan},
The Wireless Gigabit Alliance (WiGig) and IEEE 802.11ad are developing a multigigabit wireless personal and local area network (WPAN/WLAN) specification in the 60 GHz millimeter wave band. Chipset manufacturers, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and telecom companies are also assisting in this development. 60 GHz millimeter wave transmission will scale the speed of WLANs and WPANs to 6.75 Gbit/s over distances less than 10 meters. This technology is the first of its kind and will… CONTINUE READING
