WiGig Market Opportunities and Challenges Update
In this report, ABI Research explains the evolution of Wi-Fi, market trends, and recommendations for future application of the technology. 802.11ad or WiGig, in contrast to conventional 802.11 technologies, is an extension to the Wi-Fi standard, operating in the 60 GHz millimeter wave unlicensed band, and its primary focus is to offer much higher throughput than existing Wi-Fi core technologies to drive new use cases and improve the user experience. Also on the horizon is 802.11ay, the next-generation evolution of 60 GHz and the WiGig standard. This report provides an updated perspective on the outlook for 60 GHz Wi-Fi technologies, seeks to understand where WiGig will be able to carve out success, provides an overview of key chipset suppliers and 60 GHz strategies, explores why 60 GHz has had limited success to date, and suggests how it can overcome technical and market obstacles to propel it forward over the next decade.Continue
Reports & Data
Though 802.11ax (now also known as Wi-Fi 6) is only just beginning to hit the market, the IEEE 802.11 Working Group approved the formation of a new topic interest group called Extremely High Throughput (EHT) earlier this year to discuss the first steps toward developing the successor to 802.11ax. The complete task group that will work on the new standard is likely to be formed in May 2019, with an initial target completion date of two years. The primary objectives of EHT will be to increase peak throughput and improve network efficiency while better supporting higher throughput and low latency applications, including video, gaming, and Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality (AR/VR) applications.
Z-Wave’s guarantee of interoperability will be helpful as Silicon Labs attempts to move the protocol into wider markets that include smart homes and the IoT.

This presentation will provide a discussion around the Future of Wi-Fi, looking at the evolution of different Wi-Fi standards, new protocols, and new technical enhancements to the technology. The webinar will explore how Wi-Fi is evolving to better service existing markets and target new opportunities, through new standards such as 802.11ax, 802.11ah, 802.11ad, 802.11ay, in addition to the opportunities for legacy Wi-Fi standards. We will also cover the major drivers and challenges for each technology, in addition to providing strategic recommendations on how these new Wi-Fi technologies can best target new opportunities and drive growth.
This webinar will address the following questions:
- How quickly will 802.11ax take off?
- What is the opportunity for 802.11n looking forward?
- What role will Wi-Fi play in the IoT?
- Why has 60GHz Wi-Fi failed to gain traction to date?
- How is Wi-Fi innovating?
