" Intel demoing WiGig ... is a big deal for us and the industry," Sadri said. "It is recognition from one of the world's leading vendors that WiGig is real and has a bright future.
"In just a few years to come I believe people will not know what they did without it," Sadri said. "The technology is nearly ready and with chips from multiple WiGig member companies already in production, and certification ready for mid-2013, I would expect a real explosion in the number of WiGig devices coming to market soon."
