Intel Boosts Wi-Fi Speeds By 30%

Posted: 08th Jun, 2006 By: MarkJ
Intel has managed to develop a new 'Spectrum Sensing' technology for Wi-Fi (wireless) networks, which can filter out interference from other devices (Microwave ovens etc.). The chip giant claims the new method can lead to a 30% boost in speed:

Both the 802.11 b and g Wi-Fi standards transmit on the 2.4GHz band, which is shared with an array of devices including microwave ovens, cordless phones and baby monitors.

A baby monitor can prompt a Wi-Fi radio to slow down its transmission speed or shut down altogether because a computer interprets the interference as another device trying to transmit data on the same channel.

Intel's technology allows a Wi-Fi radio to identify microwave interference and boost its signal, essentially "shouting louder" to overcome the background noise.


Unfortunately Intel has no plans to submit its new technology to standards bodies, at least not while it's still being researched. More @ VNUNet.
