IEEE 802.11ay specification is now out. The upcoming Wifi 802.11ay will be an improvement over 802.11ad. According to new specs, WiFi will able to transfer data at 176 Gb/s. That means high-speed internet, data transfer, and wireless displays will rock.
WiFi 802.11ay will have a frequency of 60 GHz, a transmission rate of 20–40 Gbit/s and an extended transmission distance of 300–500 meters. Also, there is likely to have mechanisms for channel bonding and MU-MIMO technologies.
Currently, 802.11ad uses a maximum of 2.16 GHz bandwidth. However, IEEE 802.11ay will combine four of those channels together for a maximum bandwidth of 8.64 GHz. Also, MIMO will support maximum of 4 streams. The link-rate per stream is 44Gb/s, with four streams this goes up to 176Gb/s.
WiFi 802.11ay draft version 1.0 is expected to be available in July 2017.
