Everyday things change over time, but with technology, it’s nearly impossible to stay on top of all the major advancements out there. It’s continually becoming faster, more reliable, more affordable. This year, there have been multiple advances in wireless tech, so here are a few that may make a world of difference in the coming days.
WiGig, as they call it, is a high-speed wireless technology. Current wireless connection speeds can vary, but they are assumed to top out at around 1Gbps. Well, not anymore. WiGig is capable of data-transfer speeds upwards of 10Gbps. Once this is being utilized, there will be even less of a need for hard-wired computers. This means more and more use of laptops, tablets, and other mobile devices.
Bluetooth Smart: Same, But Better
Bluetooth Smart is the same short-range wireless technology, but has a distinct advantage over its predecessor. While both connect over a similar 30-foot range, Bluetooth Smart isn’t constantly sending out a signal and uses less power. Businesses will start using the new Bluetooth signal this year and into next for authentication.
Wireless In The Car
There is a new revolution of wireless streaming in cars. This past summer, it become an option to tap into fast data access over 4G LTE wireless in cars, such as the 2015 Audi A3 and the 2015 Chevy Impala.
New apps such as Kaliki, which reads the news to you, will work without data connection hiccups. In the Impala, you can share the data connection with up to seven people around the vehicle. For all intents and purposes, it’s a roving hotspot. The Audi A3 will also support read-aloud news and high-resolution photos in the touchscreen navigation to help you find a meeting location fast.
While technology has already made life simple and more manageable, we’re going to see a lot more capability in the coming months and years, allowing us all to stay connected more often and more reliably.
