A new technology called WiGig that provides higher WiFi speeds is coming soon for the smartphones and laptops. Till now even the WiFi signal is strong, and we are near to the wireless router we are getting a limited amount of bandwidth through the WiFi chips embedded in our smartphones and laptops.
With the latest WiGig technology, we can get the double speed of the data compared to what we are getting right now. Wi-Fi Alliance started certifying various gadgets like smartphones, wireless routers, laptops and other gadgets which support the latest WiGig standard.
Everything seems great, but there is a significant limitation with the WiGig technology. it can provide higher speeds only up to 10 meters distance from the WiFi router. That means you must be in the same room where WiFi router is located to get higher speeds.
Even though the range is the major drawback for the latest WiFi technology, it will be more comfortable for those who have higher bandwidth requirement for 4K video streaming and VR content. The devices which support WiGig comes with 802.11ad standard. If you find the term on any wireless device, that means it supports the latest WiGig technology.
