Samsung to come up with the fastest Wi-Fi Technology

Got frustrated with the poor Wireless networks and speed ? You don't have to be anymore. The Tech Giant Samsung has declared in a recent statement that it has made a breakthrough in Wi-fi Technology and will provide the speed of 4.6 Gbps ( 575 MB per second) as against 866 Mbps ( 108 MB per second) currently available to the customers which will let them download a 1 GB file in less than 3 seconds.

The Samsung's new claim is based on the 802.11ad ( WiGig) standard which uses 60 GHz Spectrum. Until now, there have been significant challenges in commercially adopting 60 GHz Wi-fi Technology, as the millimeter waves that get used in the spectrum have weak penetration properties and are susceptible to path loss, resulting in poor signal and data performance. But Samsung has successfully achieved the highest quality by leveraging high performance modern technologies. Moreover, Samsung claims to have eradicated the problem of the interference of the signals from too many smartphones and tablets in a single room which again promises the better quality reception.

Now, talking about the downside to this : The devices from now on will be faster Wi-fi Enabled but that needs the Internet Service Providers also to boost up their network Speeds to cope up with the latest technology which can be a challenge in the path to make such a high speed available to the customers. Moreover, since the effective range for 60 GHz is just 15 feet, it wouldn't be able to penetrate through the walls and other obstacles. So, we can't say, this new technology will replace the existing wireless networks but it will supplement them by providing speedy bursts of connectivity over extremely short distances.

The head of Samsung's DMC R&D Center said in a statement that the first devices to use the 60GHz Wi-Fi Standard will appear in the first quarter of 2015 which will include Visual and Medical Devices, Telecommunications Equipment to name a few.
