I had to cling onto my hostel roof to get a piece of Wi-Fi signal. It was so down that I could easily find a beer bottle than a signal block. But no more, because 2012 will see the advent of improved Wi-Fi protocol that could provide a mammoth data transfer speed of 6.9 Gbps.

At the present date, wireless technology is so advanced that you can watch live streaming videos without buffering but the problem starts when you want to use the same network for mutiple devices at home. Running game consoles, Blue-ray player, live TV can leave you in crunch with limitations of today’s Wi-Fi technology.

Upcoming Gigabit Wi-Fi devices could practically transmit at more then 1 Gbps, even half of which would be fast enough for connecting all communication devices at home. The new Wi-Fi standard uses the 60 GHz spectrum and is designed to power up to 6.9 GBps and is being developed under the code-name WiGig. The standard could be ready by late 2012 with devices reaching the market by 2013.

MU-MIMO, multiple-user multiple input, multiple output is a significant improvement in distribution of data between several client and several systems simultaneously in both direction. Here, Wi-Fi device could work with up-to 8 antennas all of which can transfer data to several clients to and fro in both direction at superspeed.

But a period of conflict is expected in which all devices might not work perfectly with all other devices running on older protocols. There might also be compatibility issues that’ll sort out with time.
