Market downturn is a blessing in disguise. Qualcomm moving to a right direction. Congratulation Qualcomm and bright future ahead for turining a gigantic mothership. There are still more challenges and hard works ahead but stay focus and prepare for the next 10 years.

That's the point. So there's less interference between installations and far fewer of your neighbors can put up a dish or yagi and tap into your network.

7Gbps will be on demand when the next generation HDTV is out. 60GHz band will like serve a limited range like the article has mentioned.

The article is talking about 80Mhz band. Will this overlap the current 20mhz bands of WiFi?

Actually its about 16 dB/km so for short range its not really a big issue. There are companies doing P2P links for backhaul at 60Ghz over .5 to 1 km distances today. The line of site issues are more challenging at 60 GHz.

The .11ad folks hope to get 6-7 Gbits/second out of the technology
