Qualcomm and Wilocity cram 802.11ac and 802.11ad into single tri-band design

Qualcomm and Wilocity are teaming up at CES to deliver what they claim is the world’s first tri-band WiFi solution that combines 802.11ac and 802.11ad. The new QCA9006 line (available in two different formfactors) is a natural evolution of theAR9004TB chipset, which married 802.11n to the WiGig standard. The newest reference design uses 60GHz, 5GHz and 2.4GHz radios to achieve both high speeds and broad compatibility. Sadly, there’s no immediate plans for such a cutting edge wireless chip to make its way into a shipping product. Though, CES is just getting started, so there’s always a chance some other company could deliver us a pleasant surprise. Check out the PR after the break.
