The purpose is to provide a standard for low complexity, low cost, low power consumption, and high data rate wireless connectivity among devices. Data rates will be high enough to satisfy a set of consumer multimedia industry needs, and to support emerging wireless switched point-to-point applications in data centers, wireless backhaul/fronthaul intra-device communication and kiosk downloading.This amendment defines a wireless switched point-to-point physical layer to IEEE Std. 802.15.3 operating at a nominal PHY data rate of 100 Gbps with fallbacks to lower data rates as needed. Operation is considered in bands from 60 GHz up to and including optical wireless at ranges as short as a few centimeters and up to several 100m. Additionally, modifications to the Medium Access Control (MAC) layer, needed to support this new physical layer, are defined.
