Researchers at Huawei's campus in Shenzhen, China, have achieved 10 Gbps trial data speed using Wi-Fi in the 5 GHz band, potentially laying the groundwork for creation of technical specifications for the next-generation 802.11ax Wi-Fi standard as the successor to today's 802.11ac-based gigabit Wi-Fi technology.
Currently, the WiFi industry is migrating from 802.11n to 802.11ac, which in most solutions can go as fast as 1.3G bps. Huawei officials said the ability to crank the speed up to more than 10G bps will offer the bandwidth that will give rise to larger big data applications and video workloads, which will be able to be delivered more quickly.
The manufacturer claims that the new technology could hit the market as early as 2018. Next-generation WiFi networks will be expected to support high traffic levels, especially in public spaces such as malls, airports, stadiums and, of course, workplaces. Meanwhile, an updated 802.11ac spec (802.11ac-2013) is expected to launch in 2015 with 7Gbps speeds.
