Tremendously high frequencies for last-mile applications have been available for a long time. At IBC this year, Fuji Television showed off a 120 GHz link with a range of about 2 km. Unfortunately, such systems have similar problems to optical links like the Canobeam; they are restricted to line of sight and are subject to bird fade.

The interesting (and challenging) thing about the proposed WirelessHD is how they get around the line-of-sight issues with smart antennas. Multiple beams crisscrossing the room and bouncing off walls? I look forward to learning more.

TTFN,
