A bunch of Stanford University researchers have come across a new method that might just change the way we take advantage of Wi-Fi connectivity and cell phone network speeds – through the creation of two-way communication over the same radio frequency. This will, on paper, pave the way for the doubling speed across both networks. This new research blows previous assumptions away where wireless network design is concerned, and since it isn’t radio, it is capable of receiving and transmitting simultaneously – an idea that wasn’t explored prior. This new system will require a couple of transmitters in the hardware, and are currently in their infancy although there has already been a patent application just in case the system gets commercialized down the road. We don’t think anyone is going to argue with faster Wi-Fi connectivity, do you?
