Wireless Networking (Wi-Fi) is a very essential thing for networks even there is no enough speed. Analyzing this problem, some of the companies had announced Wi-Fi routers which offer speeds of 150 Mbps to 1.3 Gbps. Wireless Router with 1.3 Gbps was announced by Netgear based on EEE 802.11ac wireless networking standard. And now, the scientists from Japan are introducing a new technology on Wireless Networking which will provide users a data transfer speed of 3 Gb Per Second. The new work is by the Scientists from Tokyo Institute of Technology who demonstrated data transfer at a speed of 3 Gb/Second at 542 GHz and they have broken the wireless data transfer speed records of all time.
Of course the technology is awesome while the speed of 3 Gbps is never provided by Wireless transfer mediums or wired connections used today worldwide. As BBC has reported, the technology is powered by T-ray band whose place is between Microwave and Infrared regions of wave Spectrum. The technology has a range of 300GHz-3THz for wireless data transfer. Resonant Tunneling Diode or RTD is known as the heart of the technology by team.
Even the speed is awesome and can solve all problems due to speed deficiency, we can’t expect this technology hence speed on Notebooks, Netbooks or Smartphones soon. As most of the technologies have, T-rays have its own limitations and problems. Terahertz waves are being used in this research which is similar to X-rays. Even the rays are not harmful as X-rays, as of today’s technology, it is complicated and inefficient in the case of power requirements. There is also another problem, if you want 3 Gbps speed, you will have to compromise in the case of distance because T-rays technology will only work in short distance of 10 Meter. With slight compromising on speeds, you may extend the distance coverage of this T-ray technology.
Anyway, there is a new way of possibility in data transfer. Even with your SATA drive’s data transfer speed, you can’t transfer files at a speed of at least 1 Gbps. So if you need to transfer files from one PC to another one, you don’t need to use your HDDs or hubs since the T-ray technology lets you to do it wirelessly with no speed loss or variation. Now the team is working for extending the distance coverage of T-rays technology and also for increasing the power output too. Anyway let us wait for this technology to be attached on upcoming Notebooks, Smartphones and Netbooks as soon as possible. Whatever maybe it’s date, the technology will be heartily welcomed by Tech World when it is launched.
