I don't know.... we used to have this UWB stuff which was down around 3-6GHz that everyone was touting as the ultimate room connectivity thing. Lots of UWB startups in 2004 or so. But in having seen real demos, it was affected by such things as a human body walking by and a fish tank anywhere near it. Could not go through walls very well and if you had concrete, forget it.

So if 3-6GHz had a propagation problem in home, then what will 60G really do? Are they going to pump up the power output so high that it can blast through walls? Then perhaps you don't want to sit next to a 40-45 dB EIRP 40-60W source at 60 GHz blasting away at the side of you head.....

Something doesn't add up for link budgets and stuff. will have to study the specs and see.
