What is WiGig:

WiGig transmits data wirelessly on the 60 GHz frequency. The 60GHz frequency is less congested than 2.4GHz or 5GHz, which means it can transfer more data at once, that translates into faster wireless data transfer speeds. WiGig does include the support for existing WiFi bands. Their tri-band enabled devices can simultaneously work on 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, and 60 GHz.

Challenge and its solution

They only drawback of the high speed 60 GHz band is, it doesn’t pose enough capabilities to teleport your data through walls, they can’t penetrate through walls hence the WiGig devices are intelligent enough to use the low-frequency bands when a user moves away from the device. But the 60 GHz waves do have the guts to reflect from walls and ceilings using the beam forming powers built right into WiGig devices.

Need of WiGig

  • Heavy files can transfers to one device to another device
  • Large files are difficult to carry & move to different devices
  • Speed of WIfi is slow
  • For wired connection various connectors required
  • Very High bandwidth with high frequency upto 60GHz
  • Unsaturated Spectrum
