Opportunities in Wi-Fi With 60 GHz (2017)

By Carol Ansley & Charles Cheevers, ARRIS

As the 2.4 and 5 GHz spectrum used for Wi-Fi gets more crowded, another unlicensed band that can reliably support multiple Gigabit transmission in the home has promise for home networking and other applications. The 60 GHz band offers a wide bandwidth with little interference from other sources. This paper gives an overview of 60 GHz and WiGig, also known as 802.11ad, and compares testing results with simulations. This paper also covers the upcoming revision still in progress with the IEEE called 11ay, highlighting some new features that will enable outdoor use cases for this versatile technology.
