The purpose of this standard is to provide for low complexity, low cost, low power consumption, high data rate wireless connectivity among devices supporting a variety of applications such as a set of consumer multimedia industry needs, wireless switched point-to-point applications in data centers, wireless backhaul/fronthaul intra-device communications and a wide variety of additional use cases such as rapid large multimedia data downloads and file exchanges between two devices in close proximity, including between mobile devices and stationary devices (kiosks, ticket gates, etc.), and/or wireless data storage devices.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 Gb/s with fallbacks to lower data rates as needed. Operation is considered in bands from 252 GHz to 325 GHz 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.
