SEOUL, Oct. 13 (Korea Bizwire) – Samsung Electronics has developed a new 60-GHz Wi-Fi technology that’s five times faster than the current Wi-Fi services. The new technology could accelerate the speed up to 4.6 Gbps (gigabyte per second) as it makes use of the rarely used ultra-high frequency of 60 GHz.
This is more than five times faster than the currently available 802.11ac standard-based wireless LAN speed of up to 866 Mbps.
With the next-generation Wi-Fi technology, high-quality uncompressed video files can be exchanged between the smartphone and the TV in real time. Even between smartphones, a movie files with the size of 1 gigabyte can be sent within 3 seconds.
In addition, the new technology is less subject to radio frequency interference as it uses higher frequency bandwidth than the currently used band of 2.4-5.0 GHz. That means the actual speed can be almost close to the advertised speed.
