The new network standard, which can reach 5Gbps but has limited range, could ease wireless congestion problems in crowded areas, according to an 802.11ad chipmaker.
A standards group is trying a second time to popularize a wireless version of the successful data-transfer technology.
Qualcomm announces at CES 2013 the first Tri-band reference design that combines Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11n, 802.11ac, and 802.11ad (WiGig) wireless capabilities in a single module, and demos the first product that supports this design.
The upcoming USB cable design is reversible, has no right-side-up or upside-down problems, and will click when you plug it in. Expect the new design on the market as soon as this year.
A startup hopes to fire up the imaginations of future customers with 802.11ad networking products that eventually could sweep away today's cables and turn smartphones into PCs.
CNET editor Dong Ngo gives all his answers to questions about the basics of home networking.
The Wi-Fi Alliance and the Wireless Gigabit Alliance announce plans to consolidate the multigigabit WiGig technology certification and development efforts under the Wi-Fi Alliance.
802.11ac and 802.11ad should be fast enough for video streaming, multiplayer gaming, and wireless tablet docking. But will they suffer standardization gridlock?
CNET editor Dong Ngo sums up CES 2013 from the perspective of networking and storage.
The WiGig Alliance has begun releasing specifications to use 60GHz wireless technology to link tablets to monitors and even replace links deep within a PC chassis.
