Huawei is testing 10Gbps version of Wi-Fi at its campus in Shenzhen. The prototype has achieved a transmission data rate of 10.53Gbps on 5GHz frequency bands by using innovative technologies such as MIMO-OFDA, intelligence spectrum allocation, interference coordination and hybrid access.. Huawei said the success of this prototype development shows a ten folds increase in spectrum efficiency is possible.  The company believes that ultrafast Wi-Fi could become commercially available from 2018.
