Samsung Develops Five Times Faster Wi-Fi Technology

A A A


Samsung Develops Fastest 60 GHz Wi-fi Technology.

Samsung has announced a new Wi-Fi technology that, it claims, will improve data transmission speed compared to current generation Wi-Fi gear by up to five times.

Samsung said in a statement that its 60GHz Wi-Fi technology will enable a 1GB movie to be transferred between devices in less than three seconds while allowing uncompressed high-definition videos to be streamed in real time.

According to Samsung, due to real-world elements like walls and household appliances, the maximum network bandwidth you see on a router’s box is never achieved.

Additionally, the current ceiling for Wi-Fi speeds for consumer electronics devices stands at around 866 megabits per second (Mbps), or 108MB per second.

Samsung claims that its Wi-Fi technology will open up the door to data transmission speeds of up to 4.6 gigabits per second (Gbps), or 575MB per second, approximately five times faster than the current ceiling for Wi-Fi speeds.

The report further adds that with this technology, a movie of 1GB in size will take less than three seconds to transfer between devices giving you a fair idea of the gravity of this innovation and its impacton our everyday Internet woes.

Commercialisation of this 60GHz Wi-Fi technology is expected as early as next year and Samsung plans to bring it to audio-visual, medical, and telecommunication equipment.

Wi-Fi, also spelled Wifi or WiFi, is a local area wireless technology that allows an electronic device to exchange data or connect to the internet using 2.4 GHz UHF and 5 GHz SHF radio waves.

The name is a trademark name, and is a play on the audiophile term Hi-Fi.

The Wi-Fi Alliance defines Wi-Fi as any "wireless local area network (WLAN) products that are based on the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers' (IEEE) 802.11 standards".

However, since most modern WLANs are based on these standards, the term "Wi-Fi" is used in general English as a synonym for "WLAN".

Only Wi-Fi products that complete Wi-Fi Alliance interoperability certification testing successfully may use the "Wi-Fi CERTIFIED" trademark.

Many devices can use Wi-Fi, e.g., personal computers, video-game consoles, smartphones, some digital cameras, tablet computers and digital audio players.

These can connect to a network resource such as the Internet via a wireless network access point.

Such an access point (or hotspot) has a range of about 20 meters (66 feet) indoors and a greater range outdoors.

Hotspot coverage can comprise an area as small as a single room with walls that block radio waves, or as large as many square kilometres achieved by using multiple overlapping access points.

Depiction of a device sending information wirelessly to another device, both connected to the local network, in order to print a document.

Wi-Fi can be less secure than wired connections (such as Ethernet) because an intruder does not need a physical connection.

Web pages that use SSL are secure but unencrypted internet access can easily be detected by intruders.

Because of this, Wi-Fi has adopted various encryption technologies.

The early encryption WEP, proved easy to break. Higher quality protocols (WPA, WPA2) were added later.

An optional feature added in 2007, called Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS), had a serious flaw that allowed an attacker to recover the router's password.

The Wi-Fi Alliance has since updated its test plan and certification program to ensure all newly certified devices resist attacks.

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. is a South Korean multinational electronics company headquartered in Suwon, South Korea.

It is the flagship subsidiary of the Samsung Group, amounting to 70% of the group's revenue in 2012, and has been the world's largest information technology company by revenues since 2009.

Samsung Electronics has assembly plants and sales networks in 80 countries and employs around 370,000 people.

Since 2012, the CEO is Kwon Oh-Hyun.

Samsung has long been a major manufacturer of electronic components such as lithium-ion batteries, semiconductors, chips, flash memory and hard drive devices for clients such as Apple, Sony, HTC and Nokia.

In recent years, the company has diversified into consumer electronics.

It is the world's largest manufacturer of mobile phones and smartphones fueled by the popularity of its Samsung Galaxy line of devices.

The company is also a major vendor of tablet computers, particularly its Android-powered Samsung Galaxy Tab collection, and is generally regarded as pioneering the phablet market through the Samsung Galaxy Note family of devices.

Samsung has been the world's largest manufacturer of LCD panels since 2002, the world's largest television manufacturer since 2006, and world's largest manufacturer of mobile phones since 2011.

Samsung Electronics displaced Apple Inc. as the world's largest technology company in 2011 and is a major part of the South Korean economy.

In June 2014 Samsung published the Tizen OS with the new Samsung Z.
