Huawei, a China based global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, has successfully achieved the industry’s first 10Gbps Wi-Fi service in laboratory trials at Huawei’s campus in Shenzhen.
This important milestone, which delivered data over Wi-Fi 10 times faster than the fastest existing Wi-Fi capability commercially available today, will enable a new era of big data applications by using ultra-fast Wi-Fi technology based on advanced next generation architecture to boost data rates to 10Gbps.
The 10Gbps Wi-Fi prototype achieved a record transmission data rate of 10.53Gbps on
5GHz frequency bands. The success of this prototype development, and the ten folds
increase in spectrum efficiency that made it possible, paves the way for the
validation of technologies needed to support the creation of next generation Wi-Fi.
Huawei believes that ultrafast Wi-Fi could become commercially available from 2018
pending the agreement of global standards requirements and sufficient chipset
As the demand for ultra-fast connectivity for smartphone applications continues to
drive the need for higher data transmission rates, the next generation of Wi-Fi
access will need to deliver a better user experience, especially in densely
populated environments requiring high density deployment such as enterprise offices,
airports, stadiums, shopping malls and coffee shops.
To address this growing need, Huawei launched next generation Wi-Fi technology
research in 2010 to focus on innovation surrounding new Wi-Fi architectures that
would break the logjam of classical Wi-Fi wideband radio and baseband processing to
increase user data rates. By utilizing innovative technologies such as MIMO-OFDA,
intelligence spectrum allocation, interference coordination and hybrid access, the
next generation of Wi-Fi networks will provide dense networking for ultra-hot-zone
services with a tenfold increase in spectrum efficiency.
