The Wireless Gigabit Alliance (WiGig) has moved closer to the launch of a new Wi-Fi broadband upgrade, it has been reported.
According to ISPreview.co.uk, the body plans to use the unlicensed 60GHz spectrum to provide wireless networking speeds of up to 7Gb.
The alliance is conducting tests on the interoperability of WiGig devices, as it plans to bring ultra-fast Wi-Fi to the market.
Dr Ali Sadri, WiGig Alliance President and Chairman, said the firm was proud to demonstrate its commitment to the broadband industry and customers through the upcoming test event.
This will set the stage for an interoperable WiGig ecosystem, he claimed.
"At the inception of the WiGig Alliance back in 2009 we envisioned the realisation of innovative and interoperable multi-Gigabit wireless connectivity among PCs, consumer electronics and hand-held devices," Dr Sandri stated.
"We are now close to making this a commercial reality."
Last week, The Cloud signed a deal to deploy wireless broadband hotspots across the Wagamama chain of Japanese-themed restaurants.
