Marvell and Wilocity are eager to bring the next phase of Wi-Fi evolution. The two companies have announced a partnership to bring tri-band Wi-Fi solutions, by including 60 GHz band with current 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, based on 802.11ad to market. The two companies will work to develop 60 GHz multi-gigabit wireless chipsets.


60GHz Gigabit Wi-Fi Chips

At present, IEEE 802.11ac router is available. The IEEE 802.11ac standard uses the existing 5 GHz Wi-Fi band. It uses wider (80 MHz or 160 MHz channels), along with improved modulation, and simultaneous multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO), for throughputs above 1 Gbps. But Marvell wants to make a more powerful router than the 802.11ac which would allow wireless networks to be much faster than those that run on today’s current 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands and would exceed 1 Gbps using 60 GHz. So, to materialize the company’s (Marvell) plan, recently chip maker Marvell has announced a partnership with Wilocity. Together, they will make tri-band chips. It means the chips they’ll make will use all three bands – 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz and 60 GHz.

Wilocity is known as the leading developer of 60 GHz multi-gigabit wireless chip-sets for both the mobile computing platform and peripheral markets. Wilocity is developing next-generation 60 GHz multi-gigabit wireless chipsets based on the WiGig specification. It means, the IEEE 802.11ad standard will follow 802.11ac and will use the unlicensed 60 GHz band. 802.11ad standards may also use of multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO), where simultaneous streams are transmitted to different users on the same channels.

802.11ad along with chips will be available for phones, tablets, ultrabooks etc. It is expected 802.11ad will be released in 2013. Marvell and Wilocity also plan to get this technology into residential gateways and media center devices.
