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.
