wi-fi has become the Chinese part of daily life, but wi-fi, only on the basis of a DSL or cable broadband, provide the last distance and range of wireless Internet connection. Wi-fi is not a DSL or fiber alternative technologies.
however, a us technology company, is developing greatly improve the ability of wi-fi data transmission technology, the future, wi-fi will no longer be confined to the family unit, and will serve as a means of telecom operators to provide Internet access, replace the existing DSL and fiber.
according to the technology of finance and economics website BusinessInsider reports, the company called “Mimosa”, of “MIMO” is a communications industry terminology, refers to the “more into the more” technology.
Mimosa, the founder of fick (JaimeFink), explains the principle and application prospect of this new technology.
at present, the radio frequency resources was cut into small channels, each channel, a data stream. And the use of technology of Mimosa, each frequency channel, will be able to transfer two or even four data flow.
this means that under the same frequency resource, wi-fi data transfer rate, will be able to significantly increase.
fick said, at present in the world of Internet access traffic, wi-fi accounted for nearly half of the amount of data the base station through mobile communication company, only accounted for less than 3%.
but in fick’s view, rely on the MIMO technology, wi-fi could account for the other half of the share. This means that the wi-fi will replace fiber and DSL, become a mainstream of absolute network access technology.
so, some cities in the United States and other countries, will rise to a new batch of broadband portal, they will cost lower wi-fi network, directly to the people with Internet access. Fick said: “I absolutely believe that, when there will be a batch of new types of ISP.”
this month, Mimosa launched the new product, ISP can via wi-fi, directly to the residents to provide Internet access, fully optical fiber or cable is no longer necessary. These products and technology, will be in the third quarter of this year, some families into the United States.
in various kinds of access technology, wi-fi has unique advantages in developing countries. Fick says, in some developing countries, in buried under a cable containing copper materials is not workable, because they will soon be thieves away.
fick forecasts that emerging markets such as Brazil, Nigeria, will be a hot market wi-fi Internet access. In these countries, entrepreneurs both at home and in the company, all need broadband service, and wi-fi will be as the only means.
in the United States, such as wi-fi wireless access technology, is also expected to congressional policy is good. Earlier this year, Mimosa to U.S. federal communications commission sent a letter to company, hopes to radio and television use part of the radio frequency resources, assigned to a wireless broadband portal.
the Mimosa most want spectrum, from 10 GHz to 10.5 GHz. Now the band is mainly by some amateur radio player or government agencies. Fick says, as long as his company or other peers can prove wi-fi communication, will not affect the application of adjacent frequencies, believe that the United States congress will eventually make more frequency resources, provide wi-fi portal.
the data shows, at present the most advanced wi-fi (wlan) technology, can support nearly 200 Mbps data transfer rate, and technology updates, leading to more and more distant from the transmission distance. As long as the area covered by a single hot more and more widely, means that the wi-fi operators, can like mobile communication base station, to a large number of households and firms that provide access to services. At the appointed time, the role of wi-fi, will also be far beyond the existing “indoor or building wireless access technology”.
the three mainstream broadband service respectively by telecom company is a DSL, cable TV coaxial cable network operators, as well as the emerging optical fiber access. Including in the United States, in Google optical fiber under the stimulus of the project, many operators have launched a rate and even gigabit broadband. Analysts said that for the wi-fi technology, fiber will also face a strong challenge. (dawn)
