angry tapir writes "The Wireless Gigabit Alliance has published its initial specification for 'WiGig' and named Cisco as the latest backer. The WiGig Alliance already includes some big names in the wireless and networking industries such as Intel, Broadcom and Atheros Communications. WiGig will use unlicensed spectrum around 60GHz and should be able to attain transmission speeds of around 6Gbps when in use."
