Atheros and Wilocity Build Tri-Band Wi-Fi + WiGig

Atheros Communications is working with Wilocity, a developer of 60 GHz multi-gigabit wireless chipsets, to build tri-band wireless solutions (2.4, 5 and 60 GHz bands) for the home.

The plan is to combine the ubiquity and coverage of Wi-Fi with the multi-gigabit performance of the Wireless Gigabit (WiGig) Alliance's 60 GHz technology for in-room connectivity. Wilocity's Wireless PCI Express (wPCIe) technology aims to eliminate all data cabling between devices.
