Qualcomm Acquires WiGig Industry Leader Wilocity

Qualcomm Incorporated today announced that it has taken two major steps to enable the industry to deliver multi-gigabit wireless with 60 GHz technology for mobile, computing and networking devices. First, Qualcomm has completed its acquisition of Wilocity, a leader in development of 60 GHz wireless chipsets based on the IEEE 802.11ad standard, also known as WiGig technology. Second, the company is delivering a family of tri-band platforms that combine Qualcomm Atheros, Inc.'s Wi-Fi and WiGig solutions to significantly increase performance and enable cutting-edge wireless applications.

The initial tri-band platform is a reference design based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, which is the world's first mobile platform designed to support WiGig to enable applications such as 4k video streaming, peer-to-peer content sharing, networking, wireless docking, and backing up entire media libraries in seconds. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor is a product of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.

Wilocity and DisplayLink Demo World's First Wireless 4K Graphics and Video

Wilocity, a leading developer of 60 GHz multi-gigabit wireless chipsets, and DisplayLink, the leading provider of USB graphics technology, today announced the industry's first demonstration of WiGig-enabled 4K graphics and video. The demonstration features a Wilocity-powered WiGig integrated notebook and a WiGig docking station -- the latter also integrates the latest 4K capable chipset from DisplayLink -- connected to a 4K resolution monitor, which is more than four times higher resolution than 1080p full HD resolution.

The demonstration is being showcased September 10-12 at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco at the DisplayLink booth and in parallel at Wi-Fi Alliance industry events in Beijing, Seoul, Taiwan and Tokyo.

Wilocity Demos First Commercially Available 60 GHz 802.11ad Products at CES

Wilocity, a leading developer of 60 GHz multi-gigabit wireless chipsets, today announced at International CES that it is demonstrating the industry's first commercially available end user products integrating Wilocity chipsets compliant with the newly ratified IEEE 802.11ad 60 GHz wireless standard. Additionally, the company will be the first to demonstrate application level tri-band networking with seamless Fast Session Transfer connected to a tri-band AP.

The company's appearance at CES follows a year of rapid momentum for Wilocity, including its recent announcement with Dell of the first commercially available WiGig-enabled product, new technology partnerships and partnership advances with Marvell and Qualcomm-Atheros and numerous other awards and industry recognition.

Wilocity WiGig Technology Powering Dell Latitude 6430u Ultrabook

Heralding a new era in high-speed wireless connectivity, Wilocity, the leading developer of 60 GHz multi-gigabit wireless chipsets, today announced that it is jointly providing tri-band wireless chipsets with Qualcomm Atheros, Inc., for Dell's first WiGig enabled Ultrabook for business, the Latitude 6430u. Dell announced the Latitude 6430u last week and demonstrated its multi-gigabit wireless docking and networking capabilities at a Windows 8 launch attended by Dell and Microsoft executives in New York City.

Dell's new Latitude 6430u Ultrabook, integrating the Tri-band chipset from Wilocity and Qualcomm-Atheros, will be among the very first devices to reach the market featuring WiGig technology (IEEE 802.11ad). WiGig technology represents a new and major step forward in the wireless mobile experience by allowing data transfer rates that are over 10 times faster than current Wi-Fi technologies. Wilocity and Qualcomm Atheros' Tri-band system allows Ultrabook users to connect to peripherals such as docks, displays and storage at multi-gigabit speeds, while maintaining standard Wi-Fi coverage throughout the enterprise.
