802.11ad Training

8802.11ad training course covers “Very High Throughput” (VHT) proposed 802.11ad, providing up to 7 Gbps throughput using approximately 2 GHz of spectrum at 60 GHz over a short range.

In the range around 60 GHz, an unlicensed frequency band is available globally and it permits higher channel bandwidths for greater throughput. Another advantage is the small wavelengths (approx. 5 mm) to make possible using compact and competitive antennas or antenna arrays (e.g. for beamforming).
