Abstract

The multimedia content is migrating promptly from standard quality to high-definition and even 3D. As a result, existing wireless technologies can no longer support multimedia streaming as their wired counterparts. To overcome this problem, new wireless technologies that support multi Gbps wireless transmission are desperately needed. In this chapter, we focus on the promising 60 GHz technology and investigate two important standards including ECMA-387 and IEEE 802.11ad standards. Key designs of the two standards are discussed and qualitatively evaluated. Based on our evaluation, one can select the solution that suits best for the targeted applications.

Among the cables to be replaced by wireless links, we focus on those that support HD streaming with transmission rates far beyond the reach of any existing wireless technology (e.g., IEEE 802.11n). These include:

  • HDMI cables that connect TV displays to set-top boxes or HD/DVD players

  • DVI cables that connect PC monitors to desktops or laptops
