802.11ad: Intel Sets Up Wigig for Docking Stations

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017 | Gadgets

Intel has announced the release of EOL (End of Life) status for various Wigig solutions for wireless docking stations with several Product Change notifications. The Wireless Gigabit Antenna-M M100041 (PDF) and the Wireless Gigabit Sink W13100 (PDF) are also available in addition to the Tri-Band Wireless-AC 18260 (PDF) and the Wireless Gigabit 11000 (PDF). As of the end of December 2017, Intel will no longer provide the products, but the end of Wigig for wireless docking stations for desktops and notebooks does not mean that.
On demand the manufacturer emphasized that there are still products for Wigig docking stations with the Tri-Band Wireless AC 18265, an M.2-3030 card, and the Wireless Gigabit Antenna-M 10101R. However, the demand for such solutions to connect notebooks to displays with a 60 GHz band is comparatively low. Business vendors like Dell and Lenovo have a few docking stations on offer.

The focus of Wigig with Intel is no longer in this product category anyway. Instead, Wigig is to be used in the future for wireless virtual reality headsets. Corresponding models are not yet, but adapter for HTC's Vive of Displaylink and Tpcast. According to Intel, Wigig's other applications are mesh networks and as part of upcoming 5G solutions, although we consider 60 GHz as a backhaul channel for single nodes across more than one space.

Competitor AMD has bought a company with Nitero, which develops its own chips for 60 GHz transmitter for Virtual Reality.
