You can transfer a 1GB movie in less than 3 seconds.
Samsung Electronics says that its latest breakthrough can make Wi-Fi up to five times faster than what we are using now.
Its 60GHz Wi-Fi technology allows for transmission speeds up to 575MB per second, which is 5 times faster than the current maximum speed possible, 108MB per second. According to Samsung, this speed allows for a 1GB movie to be transferred between devices in less than 3 seconds. Samsung also says that uncompressed high-definition videos can be streamed from mobile devices to TVs in real-time without any delay.
The latest breakthrough overcomes previous challenges inherent with 60GHz waves, which travel by line-of-sight and are affected by obstacles like walls, by utilizing a new antennae and eliminating co-channel interference.
Samsung hopes to commercialize the new Wi-Fi technology as early as next year, and expects to integrate it into medical devices, phones, and smart home appliances.
