Abstract---Wireless technology improvement has become follower in today’s modern life. One of the greatest improvements made on wireless technology field was inventing a new Wireless Technology (Gi-Fi). Gi-Fi or Gigabit Wireless is the world’s first transceiver integrated on a single chip that operates at 60GHz on the CMOS process. Gi-Fi is a wireless transmission system which is ten times faster than Wi-Fi and it’s chip delivers short-range multi-gigabit data transfer in an indoor environment. It will allow wireless transfer of audio and video data up to 5 gigabits per second, low power consumption, usually within a range of 10 meters .This technology providing low-cost, high broadband access, with very high speed large files exchange within seconds. It is required that Gi-Fi to be the preferred next generation wireless technology used in home and offices. Keywords – WI-FI; Wireless Technology; Gi-Fi; Gigabit wireless; Bluetooth

I . INTRODUCTION Melbourne University researchers have achieved up to 5Gbps data transfer rates on a wireless chip. This is a lot faster than any current Wi-Fi speeds. The world's first Gi-Fi wireless network chip developed at Australia's peak federal technology incubator has entered its commercialisation phase. The NICTA (National ICT Australia Limited) Gi-Fi research team has succeeded in taking complex 60GHz transmission technology and shrinking it to the point where it can be built on a single silicon chip. The NICTA team’s expertise in wireless transmission technology means this technology is now at the point where it can have a dramatic impact on the way consumer electronic devices are used in the home. The GiFi chip is a good news for personal area networking because there is no internet infrastructure available to cop it with. It can have a span of 10 meters. With the help of Gi-Fi chips the videos sharing can be possible without any hurdles. The Gi-Fi chip is one of Australia's most lucrative technology. Gi-Fi or Gigabit Wireless is the world’s first transceiver

Gi-Fi is a wireles ss transmissi ion system which is ten times s faster than n Wi-Fi and it’s chip delivers short-range e multi-giga abit data i an indoor environmen nt.

E. Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi is based on the IEEE 802.11 wireless local area network (WLAN) specification. Actually it was designed to be used indoors at close range for example home user and office environment. The main goal of Wi-Fi technology is to provide service for mobile computing device like laptop. Fig.7 Wi-Max

G. Gi-Fi
Gi-Fi technology provides many features such as ease of deployment, small form factor, enabling the future of information management, high speed of data transfer, low power consumption etc. With growing consumer adoption of HighDefinition (HD) television, low cost chip and other interesting features and benefits of this new technology it can be predicted that the anticipated worldwide market for this technology is vast.

F. Wi-Max
IEEE standard 802.16, also known as Wi-MAX, is a technology for last-mile wireless broadband as an alternative to cable and DSL and where the cost is Fig.8 High speed data transmission through Gi-Fi

When telling people to migrate from WiFi or Wi-Max to Gi-Fi, the question you usually hear is why. There are actually a few good reasons to move to the new technology: A. The process of Gi-Fi would use a chip that transmits at an extremely high 60GHz frequency versus the 5GHz used for the fastest forms of Wi-Fi . Characteristics Data Transfer Rate Range Specification Authority Development Start date Power Consumption Frequency Primary Devices Gi-Fi 5 Gbps 10 Meters NICTA 2004 < 2 MW 57-64GHz
Mobile phones, Home Devices, PDAs, Consumer, Electronics Office Industrial automation Devices

B. Mixing and signal filtering used in Gi-Fi technology would keep the signal strong versus the longerranged but slower and more dropprone Wi-Fi option of today. C. The GiFi uses the short-range wireless technology would potentially be a competitor or more than likely a replacement for WiFi, and things like Bluetooth might want to look out as well. D.

IV. ADVANTAGES OF GI-FI The valuable advantages of the Gi-Fi technology can be abbreviated as follows: A. Profitable Chip 
The chip in Gi-fi would likely cost about $10 or less to build a small design would allow cell phones and

other small devices to add the technology without significantly drive up the price, according to the company. As go on development the price will be decreased.

B. Small in size
The size of the Gi-Fi chip is 5×5 millimetre and can be placed in different devices such as mobile phones. The chip has a tiny 1mm antenna and uses the 60GHz ‘millimetre-wave’ spectrum. 


Faster Data Transmission

Gi-Fi is a wireless transmission system which is ten times faster than Wi-Fi and it’s chip delivers short-range multi-gigabit data transfer in an indoor environment. It will allow wireless transfer of audio and video data up to 5 gigabits per second.

D. Low Power Consumption
As the large amount of information transfer it utilizes mili-watts of power only. Power consumption of the present technologies such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are 5mili watts and 10mili watts but chip of Gi-Fi uses a tiny one-millimetre-wide antenna and it has less than 2mili watts of power consumption that in compare to the current technologies is very less. 

E. Security
Gi-Fi technology is based on IEEE 802.15.3C and this standard provides more security since it provides optional security in the link level and service level. Point-to-point wireless systems operating at 60 GHz have been used for many years by the intelligence community for high security communications and by the military for satellite-to satellite communications.

it on a home server for future viewing, again within a few seconds, high speed internet access, streaming content download (video on demand, HDTV, home theatre, etc.), real time streaming and wireless data bus for cable replacement. It makes the wireless home and office of the future. There's no reason to have five different printers in your house just so you can print in any room. Instead of constantly plugging and unplugging the printer from your laptop, you can print wirelessly from any computer. By using present technologies video swapping takes hours of time, whereas by this we can transfer at a speed of Gbps. Data transfer rate is same for transfer of information from a PC to a cell or a cell to a PC. It can enable wireless monitors, the efficient transfer of data from digital camcorders, wireless printing of digital pictures from a camera without the need for an intervening personal computer and the transfer of files among cell phone handsets and other handheld devices like personal digital audio and video players.

   Without doubt, Gi-Fi wireless technology represents a considerable improvement if compared to the existing technology. The new technology provides innumerable features that improve both the overall functionality as well as some specific security functions. Thus we conclude by all above gaining information that Gi-Fi wireless technology is advance in many matter by the existing wireless technology. GiFi technology is defined that will allow wireless transfer of audio and video data up to 5 gigabits per second, ten times the current maximum wireless transfer rate, at one-tenth of the cost, usually within a range of 10 meters that operates at 60GHz on the CMOS process. This technology removes cables that for many

If all the computers in your house are connected to a Gi-Fi network, you can easily connect your smart phone to the same network and control them. Consumers could typically download a high definition movie from a kiosk in a matter of seconds to music player or smart phone and having got home could play it on a home theatre system or store

years curled the world and provides high speed data transfer rate. Finally, I would like to state that even though Gi-Fi wireless network technology

have a huge potential we will only get the best of them .
