In my opinion the naming convention for older WiFi versions was not confusing at all. People that know the difference between different versions of Wi-fi got used to this naming convention, while the others simply don`t care what type of wifi their laptop/tablet has. Naming it 5G will create more confusion as people will think it`s somehow related to 4G and 3G.

Chris, I totally agree with you. Originally the word "3G(3.5G, 3.75G, 3.9G then LTE)" meant to stick with existing frequency and infrastructure, meanwhile 4G meant to build brand new infrastructure (such as WiMax or XGP). The word "4G" is not just meant "faster data service". I also think the word "5G WiFi" is confusing between "5GHz WiFi".

Ugh...seriously? "5G" as a name for next-gen wifi? Why??? Didn't the confusion with cellular tech ever occur to anybody? Maybe the next Kindle will support both "4G" (cell) AND "5G" (wifi)? I guess I can understand the concern over "n" to "ac" etc., but using the next "version number" from a totally different technology doesn't help. Just my opinion...

I received a Kindle Fire for Christmas. I am happy with the WiFi, but improvements are always welcome. Using 5G instead of confusing letters is a good idea. How high will they go with the G series? Maybe in a few centuries we will be up to 145G.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
