SUNNYVALE, Calif. September 17, 2013 - Wilocity, a leading developer of 60 GHz multi-gigabit wireless chipsets, today announced the integration of Wilocity chipsets into several new premium Dell Ultrabooks™ and high-performance Dell mobile workstations. Dell was first to launch tri-band Wi-Fi products earlier this year with the industry-leading Dell 6430u Ultrabook and D5000 Wireless Dock, and it continues to build on that momentum with the new product offerings.
“We’re proud to be working with Dell to lead the next wave of tri-band Wi-Fi products,” said Mark Grodzinsky, vice president of marketing, Wilocity. “These high-speed products are the first step toward a world in which all intelligent devices are connected through a Wi-Fi network. As more products reach consumers thanks to partners like Dell, we’re seeing wireless docking gain traction across the workplace, in large and small businesses alike.”
The WiGig® standard, now ratified by IEEE and incorporated into the Wi-Fi Alliance portfolio, marks a new era in wireless with speeds up to 10 times faster than mainstream Wi-Fi. Wilocity WiGig enables the near elimination of wires and the ability to transfer files virtually instantaneously and transmit high quality video streams, wirelessly.
Dell’s latest generation Latitude E7240 and E7440 Ultrabook, which became available in August, and the Precision M4800 and M6800 Workstations, which began shipping this month, feature the tri-band Wi-Fi chipset from Wilocity that integrates the multi-gigabit performance of the 60 GHz band with 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz band “whole home” Wi-Fi. Wilocity’s tri-band solution enables consumers to wirelessly connect from their laptop or workstation to compatible mouse, monitor, keyboard and conference-room equipment peripherals with the available Dell D5000 Wireless Dock for a wire-free desktop.
“Dell is committed to innovation and redefining the end-user experience for both businesses and consumers. WiGig, powered by Wilocity, is today’s fastest wireless and on the cutting-edge of connected computing,” said Kirk Schell, vice president, commercial PC product group. “Earlier this year Dell introduced the world’s first WiGig dock and recently announced the addition of the WiGig-capable Latitude 7000 and 5000 Series to the world’s most secure and manageable line of commercial PCs with outstanding reliability.”
Wilocity is expected to announce additional 60 GHz-enabled products this fall, as the company continues to broaden its portfolio with a wide variety of computing platforms.
