Wireless Gigabit Alliance opens office in Taipei

Telecom Lead Asia: The Wireless Gigabit (WiGig) Alliance
has opened its office in Taipei, Taiwan.

The alliance will mark the official opening of its office
in Taiwan by hosting a technical briefing to share information with leaders in
the consumer electronics industry and members of the press about WiGig systems.

Wireless Gigabit Alliance said WiGig is emerging as the
standard to link PCs, tablets, smart phones, handheld gadgets, peripherals,
displays and other devices together seamlessly at home and in the office.

NPD In-Stat predicted that WiGig is likely to emerge
as the most popular wireless HD video technology.

The technical briefing features speakers from Intel,
Wilocity and MediaTek who will address guests and give details of WiGig’s
MAC/PHY, WiGig Display Extension (WDE), WiGig Serial Extension (WSE) and WiGig
Bus Extension (WBE) specifications.

Backing for WiGig has continued to grow and we are
really pleased with the support we are getting from new and established
members. Taiwan is a recognized global ICT leader in OEM and ODM, and it is a
key partner for us as we seek industry-wide adoption of our technology,” said
Ali Sadri, president and chairman of the WiGig Alliance.

The WiGig Alliance is calling for more developer
involvement in the creation of the world’s first unified specification for multi-gigabit
wireless docking.

There is a lot of excitement about WiGig, and we aim to
assist in the creation of an ecosystem for the technology which will be
beneficial not only for WiGig but also Taiwan industry,” said Cheng
Sheng-Ching, executive secretary of the Committee of Communications Industry
Development of Taiwan.
