Título: Next-generation Wi-Fi: An Overview

Driven by the ever-increasing user connectivity demands, emerging and future generations of Wi-Fi, such as Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ ac and WiGig CERTIFIED™, will be capable of achieving multiple gigabits per second speeds and be used to do everything from simple web browsing and peer-to-peer sharing, to multimedia streaming, real-time teleconferencing, cable replacement, and wireless docking, to name a few. Coupled with the recent introduction of Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ Passpoint, users can further enjoy seamless and secure connectivity when roaming between cellular and Wi-Fi and between Wi-Fi networks. In this talk, we will review the state-of-the-art and the future directions of Wi-Fi technologies including Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ ac, WiGig CERTIFIED™, Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ Miracast, to name a few. Additionally, since the core wireless technology underlying Wi-Fi is the IEEE 802.11 standard, we will also discuss the recent developments in the IEEE 802.11 standardization such as 802.11ac, 802.11ad, 802.11ah, and the newly formed high efficiency Wi-Fi (HEW). We conclude by providing unique insights into the emerging and novel applications and services of next generation Wi-Fi.
