Panasonic and Narita International Airport to Launch World’s First Experimental Demonstration of Next-Generation Wireless LAN WiGig Spot
Panasonic and Narita International Airport today announced that they will launch the world’s first experimental demonstration, WiGig Spot, based on next-generation wireless LAN WiGig which provides over 10 times the data transfer rate of existing wireless LANs. WiGig is a new technology that is expected to enable frustration-free high-speed wireless transmission of rich digital content such as high-definition video. This experimental demonstration aims to validate the effectiveness of WiGig Spot.
WiGig Spot will be set up in Narita airport and feature millimeter-wave access points, which Panasonic is developing. Airport visitors will experience high-definition video download over a next-generation WLAN connection onto a dedicated terminal. The theme of the video is Omotenashi, or Japanese hospitality, and is intended to entertain inbound tourists. A complimentary DVD of the video will be provided to participants.
