10Gbps Wi-Fi, in Huawei lab trials
To put it in context, that is delivering data over Wi-Fi ten times faster than the fastest Wi-Fi capability commercially available today, says the company.
The company writes:
The 10Gbps Wi-Fi prototype achieved a record transmission data rate of 10.53Gbps on 5GHz frequency bands. The success of this prototype development, and the ten folds increase in spectrum efficiency that made it possible, paves the way for the validation of technologies needed to support the creation of next generation Wi-Fi. Huawei believes that ultrafast Wi-Fi could become commercially available from 2018 pending the agreement of global standards requirements and sufficient chipset availability.
As the demand for ultra-fast connectivity for smartphone applications continues to drive the need for higher data transmission rates, the next generation of WiFi access will need to deliver a better user experience, especially in densely populated environments requiring high density deployment such as enterprise offices, airports, stadiums, shopping malls and coffee shops.
802.11ax WLAN – with 10Gbps WiFi – is a standard planned for commercial launch in 2018.Tags: wi-fi
