When Wi-Fi comes into play there is one important factor that you need to consider the most and it is the speed. The faster the internet connection is, the better, for this will imply faster downloading and uploading of music, document, presentation and video files. A faster internet through Wi-Fi will also mean user experience like no other – silky smooth web browsing and seamless video streaming.
The Wi-Fi connectivity that we have to date offers fast and satisfactory internet connectivity but do you know that top electronics company Samsung has discovered a 60-GHz Wi-Fi technology that is capable of opening the floodgate of transmission speeds that could reach up to a breathtaking 4.6 Gigabits per second (Gbps), or 575 Megabytes per second (Mbps). This is around five times faster than the current upper limit for Wi-Fi speeds for the various electronic devices like computers which have a speed of about 866 megabits per second (Mbps), or 108 Mbps.
To have a good perspective view of how fast this new Wi-Fi connection, a movie which usually occupy one Gigabyte of your hard disk space is usually downloaded for about 10 minutes or even longer in most computers with internet connection, but with Samsung’s new discovery the download of one GB of movie will only spend three seconds to download a 1 Gb movie.
Samsung stated that its vaunted Samsung’s 802.11ad standard 60 GHz Wi-Fi technology can sustain maximum speed by getting rid of co-channel interference, in spite of of the number of devices using the same network not like the existing 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi technologies that are commonly used at present.
The innovative appliance giant company also quipped that it has already overcame the issues that gives affects net connection like the millimeter waves, which move via line-of-sight (LOS) and are hindered by walls and other hurdles, by coming up with a wide-coverage beam-forming antenna, micro beam-forming control technology, and other sophisticated innovations.
This groundbreaking discovery will help Samsung level the battlefield and even takes the edge in the technology industry and the company is looking forward on combining this new Wi-Fi technology in an assortment of its products such as smartphones, computers, audiovisual devices, medical devices and telecommunications equipment.
Samsung also intends to market its still not licensed 60 GHz Wi-Fi band next year or as soon as possible.
This is indeed a great development. The technology is indeed moving at a break neck speed and advances and breakthroughs are unraveled one after the other to the delight of the consumers and Samsung just pulled of another milestone.
