The development supports speeds up to 4.6 gigabits per second (Gbps), compared with the maximum 866 megabits per second (Mbps) in modern consumer devices. At that high speed, if users download movie size of 1GB it will finish in less than 3 seconds, and streaming of HD content between devices without compression will be done with no delay.
The technology complies with the specification "IEEE 802.11ad" and uses frequency range of 60GHz, unlike modern Wi-Fi networks operating in the range 2,4GHz and 5GHz. The higher frequency allows to avoid interference channels for connection regardless of how many devices use the same network, claims Samsung.
The speed improvements are because there is lack of interference. Thanks to this, the maximum speed can go about 10 times higher than the current Wi-Fi networks, which are prone to interference.
