    Does anyone who works in the wifi/communications industry know anything about this LTE wigig standard?
    It would be awesome to be able to upgrade camera/wifi systems to utilize the 4k speeds.
    I assume it would take a new antenna in the Camera (or new camera developed) and transmitter. Maybe something to look forward to in new models from DJI.

    Here is an excerpt from the site:


    Wi-Fi, the perpetual annoyance of just about all things technology-related, could finally be getting the overhaul it needs. Called WiGig, or 802.11ad, a new standard for Wi-Fi is finally set to be introduced to consumer devices.

    Qualcomm's 810 generation chipset, which is due to make its way into smartphones and tablets next year, will support WiGig and should bring with it a drastic change to what Wi-Fi can do for us.

    The new system can support up to 4GB per second of data transfer, which basically lifts the lid off any restrictions previously put on Wi-Fi around data. Obviously no-one has a home broadband connection that fast, but WiGig is about much more than that.

    Would be awesome for FPV'ers!
    Any opinions welcome... Expert or otherwise!
