Samsung reckon they've solved pesky wi-fi issues

13 October 2014

Bitterwallet - Samsung Samsung reckon they've come up with a 60 GHz wi-fi technology that will actually adjust to the idealised speed from the actual WiFi speed.

Samsung's WiFi - it is claimed - will allow speeds of up to 4.6 gigabits a second or 575 megabytes per second.

That's approximately five times faster than the current high watermark for WiFi speeds, which mooch in at 866 Mbps or 108 Mb.

So, for example, a 1 gigabyte (GB) movie could be transferred between devices in fewer than three seconds, and uncompressed high-definition videos can be streamed from mobile devices to TVs in real time.

Samsung went all announce-y and said: “Unlike the existing 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi technologies, Samsung’s 802.11ad standard 60 GHz Wi-Fi technology maintains maximum speed by eliminating co-channel interference, regardless of the number of devices using the same network.”

Samsung claim they've solved all the palavers that get in the way of traditional WiFi , by making use of wide-coverage beam-forming antennae and micro beam-forming control technology. How flash!

The 'sung hope to integrate this new technology into it's products as early as next year.
