802.11ad

802.11ad

An IEEE Wi-Fi standard for short range transmission in the 57 to 71 GHz frequency range. Introduced in 2012, the 802.11ad speed rating is 4.6 Gbps, which is more than three times 802.11ac's Wave 1 top speed of 1.3 Gbps (see 802.11ac). However, 11ac was designed as a next generation wireless LAN, whereas 11ad is more of a short range cable replacement (see WiGig).

802.11ay
Expected in 2019, 802.11ay is a proposed enhancement to 802.11ad that quadruples bandwidth and adds four streams of MIMO. 11ay also extends the distance to several hundred meters. See WiGig and 802.11.

Letv has already established itself as one of the worlds top innovators and our decision to include the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, Snapdragon Sense ID and the first to roll out 802.11ad into these new devices demonstrates our commitment to creating and delivering the best technology available to our customers, said Jun Liang, chief operating officer, Letv.
SiBEAM Inc., a Lattice Semiconductor company (NASDAQ: LSCC), today announced a USB 3.0 adapter reference design supporting the IEEE 802.11ad wireless standard (also known as WiGig) for wireless connectivity at gigabit per second speeds over the 60 GHz frequency band.
Qualcomm Technologies will carry on to advance this platform throughout the 2016 race season and beyond, with potential system architecture changes and planned migration to 802.11ad Wi-Fi solutions more than 60 GHz spectrum to bring further improvements to the speed and efficiency of data transfer.
In addition to its leading LTE features, the Snapdragon 820 processor also supports superior Wi-Fi performance and connectivity experiences through QualcommA VIVE 802.11ac with QualcommA MU | EFX MU-MIMO technology, along with tri-band support, through multi-gigabit 802.11ad (11ad) Wi-Fi.
It brings tremendous performance to even the most data-intensive business, video, photography and mobile gaming applications, as well as supports 802.11ac and 802.11ad network standards.
Commercially viable 60 GHz millimeter-wave band Wi-Fi technology using the 802.11ad standard that allows data transmission speeds up to 4.6 Gbps, has been developed by Samsung.
As consumers demand wireless videos and data continues to grow, 802.11ad in the 60GHz spectrum shall provide more enhanced network capacity that makes it a feasible extension for the congested 2.4GHz/5GHz Wi-Fi spectrum.
This product supports the powerful Wi-Fi capabilities offered on the Snapdragon 855 Platform by including the Qualcomm 60GHz Wi-Fi chipset (based on the 802.11ad specification) for multi-gigabit speeds and wire equivalent latencies, as well as the Qualcomm 2x2 Wi-Fi 6-ready chipset for next generation capacity, efficiency, and performance at range.

Nokia's industry leading WPON technology combines Passive Optical Networks (PON) with WiGig, a high-speed, 60 GHz standard otherwise known as 802.11ad. With WPON, XL Axiata was able to extend the reach of its fiber network by connecting to WPON Access points which in turn connect endpoints with wireless drops.
Apparently, the introduction of WiGig (802.11ad), a new high-speed Wi-Fi standard, "into any mobile product brings new and unanticipated challenges."
Wireless PON takes fibre within a few metres (typically 100) of the point of consumption, and then uses 60 Ghz 802.11ad wireless drops to deliver connectivity, avoiding the need to take fibre into individual buildings and lowering the deployment's cost per user.
