I am somewhat sceptical about these efforts...signal attenuation is much larger at 60 GHz than at 5 GHz...the press release states teh distance of 150m, sounds too good to be true...unless I am missing something...Kris

@BobDVD: These folks are saying 60 GHz will ride Wi-Fi's coat tails to volumes that make it attratctive for small cell backhaul and ultimately for 5G Wi-Fi offload.

What do others think?

We all know small cells are an important operator-focused solution. Integration of LTE and Wi-Fi within small cells is definitely a good idea destined to address QoS issues.

I think the drive towards carrier grade 60GHz is because the cost of the early adoption is high for consumer devices, by using it for backhaul there is a way to introduce the technology and shake it down before trying to take it to mass-production in consumer devices.

When 60GHz does come into homes it will be interesting because I think the customer support issues will be significant.

Magnacom's digital modulation technology remains an area to watch as small cell base stations continue to develop into a technology of the present.
