60ghz wireless on the way

TOKYO -- The Wireless Gigabit Alliance (WiGig), the organization advancing the worldwide adoption and use of 60 GHz wireless technology, today announced the publication of its unified wireless specification and the opening of its Adopter Program. WiGig adopter members can now begin developing wireless products that use the unlicensed 60 GHz spectrum to deliver multi-gigabit-speed wireless communications.

The WiGig specification enables high-performance wireless data, display and audio applications that supplement the capabilities of today’s wireless LAN devices. WiGig tri-band enabled devices, which operate in the 2.4, 5 and 60 GHz bands, will deliver data transfer rates up to 7 Gbps, more than 10 times faster than the highest 802.11n rate while maintaining compatibility with existing Wi-Fi devices

Cisco is on the board of director's so I wouldn't be surprised to see 60ghz tech hit the market by december this year.

Wouldn't the range on 60GHz be like 10 feet?

Multi-gigabit, it's about time. Wireless is catching up but wired is still by far better, I wonder if that will ever change, especially in the consumer market.

Might look bigger, but it aint.....

Ive been on wireless for years on my main desktop. The only real complaint I have about it is because its wireless, instead of sending packets one at a time, it will cache some up and send them en-mass. This isn't a huge deal but for games like CoD4 I get a good lag spike every time it does this. Luckily it only happens every 5 minutes or so.

As frequency goes up, period goes down? Something like that. I would think the range would take a sharp hit as well.
