The South Korean giant has said that this new 60GHz Wi-Fi technology is capable of 4.6Gbps, or an insane 575MB/sec. Considering the fastest Wi-Fi technology available right now is just 866Mbps, which transfers at around 108MB/sec, this is a massive increase. The 60GHz technology would be capable of transferring 1GB in less than two seconds. Samsung's announcement of this technology teases "Unlike the existing 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi technologies, Samsung's 802.11ad standard 60 GHz Wi-Fi technology maintains maximum speed by eliminating co-channel interference, regardless of the number of devices using the same network".

The company has said that part of the success it found in its 60GHz Wi-Fi technology is that it uses millimeter waves, which travel by line of sight and are stopped by walls and other obstacles. Samsung uses wide-coverage, beam-forming antennae as well as micro beam-forming control technology to achieve the 575MB/sec, or 4.6Gbps speeds. Samsung has said that commercialization of the 60GHz Wi-Fi band spectrum would happen as soon as early 2015.
