(WIreless GIGabit) A short-range wireless technology introduced in 2009 by the WiGig Alliance, which was later absorbed into the Wi-Fi Alliance. Using the unlicensed 60 GHz band, WiGig was designed as a cable replacement for home theater equipment as well as wireless docking for mobile devices. Supporting a 7 Gbps data rate, WiGig offers more bandwidth than Wi-Fi but also throttles down to Wi-Fi speeds in noisy environments. However, if the signal has no obstruction, it can transmit up to 60 feet. See wireless dock.11ad and 11ayWiGig uses the IEEE 802.11ad and 802.11ay standards for transmission (see 802.11ad). See wireless USB, WirelessHD, WHDI and ISM band.
