IEEE approves new standard for Wi-Fi connections with a range of 100 kilometers at 22Mbps

For years we have been used to refer to Wi-Fi connections by 802.11 standards that have already passed protocols The, B, g and are in today n, which operates in both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands and reaches 600Mbps.

But the IEEE brought a big news this week: the approval of the new 802.22 standard.

What can we expect from an evolution in this sense? More speed and greater range, of course. But the thing intended for calls Wireless Regional Area Networks (WRANs) better than you can imagine.

The IEEE 802.22 standard finally makes ?Super Wi-Fi? connections possible, making room for wireless connections known as ?White space?, which will use frequencies previously reserved only for TV broadcasts. With it, users will be able to communicate with the transmitter at no less than 100 kilometers (!) Away, with a performance of up to 22Mbps per channel.

Imagine the possibilities
