The thumping big news is WiGig's joint announcement with the WiFi guys that the WiGig spec will become part of the WiFi family.
The immediate implications are:
- WiFi Dumps the 802.11 process. WiGig is the first full specification that WiFi will certify that does not have a SDO backing.--before today WiFi only took stuff from 802.11. WiFi seems not want to wait until 2015 for the IEEE to finish their 600GHz project.
- SiBEAM Jumps to WiGig and tries to save face by announcing a never-to-be-seen-and-soon-to-be-forgotten dual mode (WirelssHD/WiGig) chip--seems to be a smart move if they have the cash to switch.
- Amimon Stumped but continues to do what it is doing (500K chips so far--so what) and are going it alone--right, this should last as long as they have VC money to spend.
