Samsung announces new Wi-Fi standard

Samsung was able to rid the network of co-channel interference regardless of the number of devices that are using it at the same time. Additionally, the 60GHz technology has suffered from having weak-penetration capabilities and path loss, resulting in signals that were too weak to be used by any device. According to the company, it was able to get around this problem by using a specific circuit design and a "beam forming antenna." Samsung said it was also able to develop a method that allows multiple devices to connect to a network simultaneously.
Once the 60GHz band is commercialized, Samsung hopes to use this Wi-Fi standard for telecommunications, no doubt offering it on future handsets. It also plans on employing the network for audio visual and medical devices as well as for products related to the Samsung Smart Home.

Being a Cisco guy I would love to see Sammy collaborating with Cisco to bring some great networking devices based on this standard. I implemented 802.11AC based APs and they are really game changer. Can't wait to see 11AD :)

Glad to see Samsung is continuing to push forward the state of the art. Hopefully Samsung doesn't fall into the same muckhole that Apple/Intel did with Thunderbolt. It'd be great to see something like this Samsung technology become "Wireless USB".

So what's the difference between Samsung’s 802.11ad standard 60GHz Wi-Fi technology and 802.11ad announced in 2012? It eliminates co-channel interference while the other one just minimized it?

That's a terrific speed, but I see the intensity of the 5GHz signal from my router fall twice as fast as its 2.4GHz signal. Can this speed be sustained more than a few yards away from the base antenna without a line of sight?
