Samsung Develops MIMO Wi-Fi for Consumer Electronics

Samsung Electronics has developed a high-throughput wireless AV entertainment (HiWAVE) technology for delivering distortion-free connectivity over a 20 meter range.

The system leverages high-throughput MIMO (multiple input multiple output) technology to minimize channel distortion and interference, enabling network devices to transmit data streams over great distances. The system has been designed to effectively service multiple AV streams for the home network environment.

HiWAVE's throughput of more than 60 Mbps enables streaming of HD video. The new system, which Samsung developed over a two-year period, is backwards compatible with 802.11 standards. Samsung plan to launch HiWAVE-enabled products in the second half of 2005.
