Huawei claims to have successfully tested 10Gbps WiFi technology in its lab in Shenzhen, China.

That speed is 10 times faster than that promised by the latest generation of commercial WiFi tech, which is based on the IEEE’s 802.11ac standard and is only just beginning to be incorporated into connected devices.

Huawei’s test, the results of which were announced last week, saw a prototype device achieve a peak throughput of 10.53Gbps using an unspecified amount of spectrum in the 5 GHz band. The technology tested by Huawei will contribute towards the development of 802.11ax, the successor to 802.11ac.

"Huawei believes that ultrafast WiFi could become commercially available 2018 pending the agreement of global standards requirements and sufficient chipset availability," predicted the vendor, in a statement.

In addition, Osama Aboul-Magd, who carries out R&D at Huawei, currently chairs the IEEE 802.11ac task group and in May was elected as the chair of the 802.11ax task group as well.

"Huawei continues to actively promote and invest in the research and development of advanced technologies for WiFi and is recognised as a leading contributor to the development of next generation WiFi standards," said Huawei.
