Wi-Fi Alliance starts certification of WiGig products

Tuesday 25 October 2016 | 08:10 CET | News
The Wi-Fi Alliance announced certification for the first products based on the 802.11ad standard, known as WiGig. The certification programme is expected to support the multi-vendor interoperability needed to proliferate WiGig devices. WiGig operates in 60 GHz spectrum, which is less congested and complements existing Wi-Fi operating in 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, to enable multi-gigabit performance for a range of applications such as wireless docking, augmented reality/virtual reality, multimedia streaming, gaming, and networking applications.
