IEEE 802.11ad is the latest addition to the IEEE Wireless LAN (WLAN) set of technologies. Situated at 60 GHz rather than 2.4 or 5 GHz, it brings its own set of advantages and challenges. Prefaced with a modest overview of standards and market trends, this webinar will present a description of the physical layer construction – including explanations of framing, modulation, encoding, and error correction using example signals and measurements to emphasize principles.

Who should attend:
Engineers, managers and marketing professionals interested in understanding the details and challenges of 802.11ad.
