TweakTown reports Samsung has created a new 60GHz WiFi technology capable of 575MB/s data transfers - five times faster than the highest-performing WiFi technology available right now. Samsung plans to commercialize the 60GHz WiFi band spectrum in 2015.
The company has said that part of the success it found in its 60GHz Wi-Fi technology is that it uses millimeter waves, which travel by line of sight and are stopped by walls and other obstacles. Samsung uses wide-coverage, beam-forming antennae as well as micro beam-forming control technology to achieve the 575MB/sec, or 4.6Gbps speeds. Samsung has said that commercialization of the 60GHz Wi-Fi band spectrum would happen as soon as early 2015.
