Gigabit Wireless Expected in 2009?!?

While we are on the topic of 802.11n and speed, I thought this was an applicable story that appeared on Network World’s website earlier in the week.

It talks about Quantenna Communications plans to release a 4×4 MIMO chip set in Q3 of 2009 that is capable of 1 Gbps wireless bandwidth (600 Mbps of throughput).

With 100+ Mbps throughput currently provided by 802.11n, most desktop applications have more than enough bandwidth.   Gigabit Wireless would certainly eliminate speed as one of the obstacles to replacing Ethernet with wireless.
