Samsung’s New Wifi Technology: Download Complete Movie In 5 Seconds
Samsung has really taken over the smartphone world by storm, at least the part of the population that likes to use android. But apart from making leaps and bounds in the cell phone industry Samsung has also announced that they are building a technology which would see the Wi-Fi data transmission to go up to 4.6 gigabits per second, as in 575 MB per second.
Head of Samsung’s R&D center, Kim Chang Yong said in the announcement,
“Samsung has successfully overcome the barriers to the commercialization of 60 GHz millimeter-wave band Wi-Fi technology, and looks forward to commercializing this breakthrough technology.”
The Wi-Fi range will go up from the traditional 5GHz to the 60GHz which will free up around 8GHz of bandwidth instead of the few hundred MHz that is available now-a-days. Suffice to say that the user would be able to download a standard DVD movie in 3 seconds, a Blu-ray Movie in around 15 and a Full HD song within a portion of a second.
Samsung refers to this technology being available as soon as within one year as they try to deploy the tri and quad stream 802.11ac devices to the internet of things.
Although Samsung has also admitted that until recently this idea of 60GHz range was just theoretical until recently because of the difficulty of this wave band to pass through walls. But some breakthrough by the Samsung developers in the methodology and equipment has really allowed them to strive forward.
