What you should know about millimeter waves.

Question 1:Why did Apple include a dedicated millimeter communication feature for iPhone 12 on the US market? What is the mmwave technology?

To put it simply, mmwave is a 5G communication technology developed by various telecommunications development associations [3GPP]. This is the new generation of communication technology after 3G and 4G. Right now, it is only widely used in developed countries that have a very powerful and comprehensive 5G infrastructure.

The 5G signal is divided into two segments according to frequency.

Frequency range 1: 400MHz to 6GHz, also known as Sub6GHz.

Frequency range 2: 24.25GHz to 60GHz, the wavelength is about a few millimeters, hence the name mmwave.


Question 2: What kind of mmwave does iFOO use? And what are its technical advantages?

IFOO has adopted the 60GHz millimeter wave, and it also has a large bandwidth of 3.96Gbps. Thanks to the latest OFDM modulation mode, it can provide a more efficient use of fixed bandwidth resources. Moreover, it has a powerful antenna array, as well as an improved implementation of the beam informs and multi-input multi-output (MIMO).

The lossless 1080P60Hz wireless signal offers the simultaneous transmission of sound and video. This enables wireless commercial display, game, live broadcast, conference and other application scenarios to realize plug and play, and at the same time, bring in front the superior experience of high picture quality, 0 delay and 0 interference.

Question 3:Which is better, millimeter-wave or Wi-Fi? What special experiences will user have?

We can compare the performance of these technologies in a table. Compared with Wi-Fi, which is used all over the world, mmwave has a greater bandwidth, higher transmission rate and smaller latency. This provides a multitude of advantages in high-speed transmission of video and audio. While Wi-Fi has ecological advantages, its channels are crowded. This brings in issues like serious interferences, poor real-time performance and limited rate improvement.

If you haven't used this type of technology before, you'll be amazed with its great audio/video syncing and 0 latency casting.


Question 4:There must be a lot of products in the market using this kind of technology, right?

Currently, most products on the market still rely on the Wi-Fi technology. That happens because the frequency of millimeter wave is too high, the signal attenuation is large as well. As a result, the wall and human body can interfere with signal transmission. But this still can’t stop users from pursuing high-speed wireless transmission. That’s why we believe that mmwave applications in the home, entertainment and business sectors will be the mainstream of the future. IFOO is definitely an innovative product.

Question 5:Since this is a very new technology, is it compatible with the products we use on a daily basis?

A lot of testing was performed during the development phase to verify that iFOO supports casting for most phones and computers, as well as Switch, PS4, and XBOX consoles. It even supports SLR and camera casting. The great thing is that when you go out in the future, all you have to do is bring iFOO with you. Then you can enjoy high speed screen casting anytime, anywhere.
