To Be Faster – 3:  Using Millimeter Wave

Since laws hinder the use of the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, we may come up with the idea to use a totally different frequency.  It is a 60GHz band and is called Millimeter Wave.  Consecutive bands more than 10GHz have been made available on an unlicensed basis in some countries.  The IEEE802.11ad standard has been now researched and developed as the Wireless LAN in the 60GHz band.  An organization called WiGig is also promoting to standardize this frequency band at the same time.

IEEE802.11b was first introduced in September, 1999.  IEEE802.11b is now recognized as the first wireless LAN standard.  Over ten years later, IEEE802.11n is now the latest standard.  The transfer speed which used to be 12Mbps is now 600Mbps (theoretical maximum value).  WEP was the first encryption technology but has been replaced by WPA/WPA2.  For initial setup, WPS is getting popular, which enables users to connect devices by just pushing a button.

In this series of articles, I would like to share my view of the future trends for Wireless LAN’s.  The first subject is about people's unstoppable thirst: "to be faster".
