About WiGig Technology

The unlicensed 60 GHz band has been available for several years, but only now is it possible to implement devices in low cost SiGe BiCMOS and CMOS technologies. With the support of the FCC and other regulatory bodies, leading-edge IEEE 802.11ad solutions are entering small cell and CE marketplaces.  The combination of low cost implementation and power efficiency versus other wireless standards, coupled with enormous spectrum makes Peraso 60 GHz wireless ideal for next generation mobile applications.

60 GHz wireless technology provides an ideal alternative to fiber. Particularly in dense urban environments, utilizing fiber for small cell backhaul is inconvenient and troublesome to deploy and carries costly capital and operating expenditures. License-free V-band spectrum allows carriers to quickly deploy increased capacity to their networks with additional cell coverage, or alternatively, provide additional network coverage in outlying regions.
