GIG will power iphone 5, droid, wp8,surface,thinkpad with their 10gigabit/sec& up radio between cell towers
Mobile operators need GIG 10gigabit/second &beyond radio for shortage of bandwidth with 4G smartphones and tablets
.Chief Technology Officer Andrea Betti Berutto just did an interview of 5 pages, here is most important part: NF: With all the exciting R&D in millimeter-wave technologies, what are the hottest applications driving it right now AB: LTE will soon be ubiquitous due to the fact that the adoption rate of new technologies is getting faster and faster. LTE can support rates to 40 Mb/s to the user, so multiply that by the number of people who’ll buy the next-generation Android and iPhone smartphones and you come up with a lot of data being transferred! GigOptix’s mission is to enable high-speed data communications, whether it is optically, wirelessly, or over copper. We expect high-speed wireless infrastructure to be rolled out to address the forecasted user demand for more bandwidth and we expect E-band technology to play a central role in enabling this revolution.
