But instead, they've decided that it was better to make the partnership official, in order to get the most out of their work together. Their long-term plans include expanding WiGig's capabilities and implementing a baseline interoperability certification program by early next year. The combined effort could push forward a large growth, with ABI Research forecasting that we'll see annual shipments of 1.8 billion devices sporting both WiFi and WiGig support by 2016.
