The SX-PCEAD implements the IEEE802.11ad WiFi/WiGig standard in 60GHz band for high speed communication. It is based on the QCA6320 chipset from Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.. The 60GHz frequency band supports much wider bandwidths than those of the 2.4GHz or the 5GHz bands. Thus it can achieve a maximum PHY data rate of 4.6Gbps using 2GHz bandwidth. Signals in 60GHz band do not easily penetrate walls etc. so it is an ideal technology for short range in-room use cases such as IP docking, transferring multimedia content such as 4K videos and images, video streaming and projection, insanely fast movie downloads from kiosks, high resolution medical imaging, etc.
