Wi-Gi the high-speed successor of the Wi-Fi, up to 300 MB/sec.

Wireless networks gets a substantial upgrade for the end of this year, although there are significantlimitations to be concerned. After all, manufacturers hope to have an successor for the well-known Wi-Fi wireless technology, called Wi-Gi. Why the letter G? Well it's simply because the G comes after the F in the alphabet, but it also reference to "giga". The wireless technology would be 10 times faster, creating a theoretical throughput of no less than three gigabits per second. In other words it can transport about 300 megabytes in a second. We don't have to tell you that such a speed can only be reached under ideal conditions. Therefore, the equipment must be directly in opposite to each other without any obstructions between.

Moreover, there is a serious fly in the ointment. To get that fabulous speeds, manufactures has to switch to ultra-high frequencies. While today Wi-Fi works at 2.4 or 5 gigahertz, has Wi-Gi a place in the 60 gigahertz band claim. And that puts a number of laws of physics in operation, the main restriction that signals on that frequency using extremely short wave disturbance so sensitive that they cannot get through a wall. So Wi-Gi wireless networks will not do forget the Wi-Fi networks. Because the use will be limited to situations where sender and receiver see each other. We expected that the use of Wi-Gi will be effective father a year of two. Routers that supported both Wi-Fi and Wi-Gi wil see the light in 2012.
