WiGig Alliance Endorses Publication of IEEE 802.11ad™ Standard as Critical Moment in Multigigabit Wireless Industry Transformation

IEEE publishes its standard for Very High Throughput in the 60 GHz band

Santa Clara, CA January 8, 2013 The Wireless Gigabit (WiGig) Alliance, which formally contributed to the IEEE 802.11ad standard process, has heralded its publication as a critical moment in bringing a global wireless ecosystem of interoperable, high performance devices that work together seamlessly.

"We congratulate IEEE and the WiGig member companies on the completion and publication of the 802.11ad standard and look forward to seeing its adoption across the industry," said Ali Sadri, President and Chairman of the Wireless Gigabit (WiGig) Alliance. "Our members have worked closely with IEEE on developing the standard. We are excited to say that the WiGig MAC/PHY specification is completely aligned with the published 802.11ad standard. Gaining approval from a global standardization body gives WiGig Alliance additional international recognition and moves us one step closer to widespread industry adoption."

Momentum for WiGig technology is growing. News of publication of the new IEEE standard follows on from Intel demonstrating WiGig multigigabit wireless docking as a technology of the future at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) 2012 in San Francisco in September.

WiGig is on track to become the most important next generation wireless networking technology. Speeds of up to 7Gbps using the unlicensed 60 GHz frequency band, combined with advanced Protocol Adaption Layers (PAL), will mean its applications go beyond that of a straight forward access technology. The same implementation of a WiGig Alliance PAL specification can operate on top of the published 802.11ad standard or the WiGig MAC/PHY specification.

WiGig technology will be demonstrated by several WiGig member companies at 2013 International CES in Las Vegas.

Disruption, Innovation, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Leadership and Management hear these words all day every day... lofty goals but how do we make it real? Add to that, that simply put, people don't like change. But what if we could implement and utilize these enterprise tools in a fast and "Non-Disruptive" way, enabling us to glean insights about our business, identify and reduce exposure, risk and liability, and secure business continuity?
