The demonstration gives you an idea of how traffic is slowed up on your home router system in a typical home environment. Broadcom has a hardware accelerator that would allow you to get full gigabit service from the net, if your service provider offered it. In many instances this would not be possible on a standard router, so Broadcom’ s accelerator has a distinct advantage, especially in countries that already offer these advanced high speed internet services which can cater for high bandwidth streaming around the home or small business.
Senior Director Dino Bekis from Broadcom introduced us to their new 5G WiFi router that was streaming simultaneously a total of four HD video streams, set up in the Computex arena, where WiFi was incredibly congested. 5G WiFi has amazing bandwidth and exceeds anything to be seen in 3G and 4G. The ramp up to 5G has started, with products from ASUS already, and by next year this time, 5G will be pretty common even in mobile devices.
