The Wireless Gigabit (WiGig) Alliance is set to host an executive summit on June 5 in Taipei as part of COMPUTEX, the world's leading ICT procurement platform.
The summit is being jointly organized by Taiwan’s Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI), WiGig Alliance and the Taipei Computer Association (TCA). It will serve as a platform for speakers and local businesses to connect on global trends and network with international experts and communication brands.
WiGig is a 60 GHz super-high-speed wireless technology which is emerging as the short-range standard to link PCs, tablets, smart phones, handheld gadgets, peripherals, displays and other devices together seamlessly at home and in the office.
Ali Sadri, President and Chairman of the WiGig Alliance commented: “With this executive summit we aim to inform customers about the WiGig Alliance member commitment to enable not only the technology but also the ecosystem of interoperable products. WiGig technology extends the user experience beyond the traditional wireless networking technologies widely used to connect to the internet. WiGig enables applications and services that developers can currently only imagine. With this high profile summit we want to encourage engagement between original equipment manufacturers, design manufacturers and silicon providers to ensure that WiGig will be an essential part of many products in the near future.”
The summit will be held at the Taipei International Convention Center and feature a keynote and panel discussion, including speakers from WiGig Alliance, Broadcom, Panasonic, Qualcomm Atheros, Intel and Wilocity. The most up-to-date marketing trends and advanced technical information, as well as WiGig strategies for broadband markets, will be discussed. The event will also feature a WiGig presentation of case studies.
“As a global centre for ICT manufacturing, Taiwan is forming a central part of WiGig’s strategy to expand in Asia. We aim to create the WiGig ecosystem that will also benefit Taiwan’s ICT industry. We feel that WiGig represents a great opportunity for many of the industry leading companies based here,” said Dr. Cheng Sheng-Ching, Executive Secretary of the Committee of Communications Industry Development of Taiwan (CoCID).
“This is an exciting opportunity for the Taiwan technology industry. The WiGig Alliance is expanding its presence in Asia and I think the improvements brought about by this technology will be greatly beneficial for developers in Taiwan. The executive summit will be informative for both industry bodies and product developers and I am pleased to be a part of this innovative work,” said Mr. Charles Y.P. Huang, Deputy Secretary General from the Taipei Computer Association.
Momentum for WiGig has continued to grow in recent months with a number of high profile members joining, including Huawei and ZTE. The WiGig Alliance is now calling for even more developer involvement in the creation of the world’s first unified specification for multi-gigabit wireless docking which is set to make connecting wires redundant.
After WiGig’s first successful plugfest in late 2011 more are scheduled throughout 2012 with the first release of certified WiGig products set for early 2013. For further information follow @WiGigAlliance or visit http://wirelessgigabitalliance.org/
