The IEEE has approved a new version of the Wi-Fi standard - IEEE 802.11ad - for Wi-Fi operating at 60GHz, delivering throughput up to 7Gbps and able to seamlessly fallback to the current standard for Wi-Fi in the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands.
The Wi-Fi Alliance - the industry body that oversees standardisation and product certification for Wi-Fi products - is to absorb the WiGig Alliance, a body formed in 2009 to fulfil a similar role for new wireless LAN technologies designed to provide throughput of several gigabits per second.
A EU-funded consortium of 29 European organisations spanning telecommunications manufacturers, network operators, the automotive industry and academia initiated and led by Ericsson has been launched to try and ensure European leadership of future cellular technologies.
