The origin of the 802.11 standard
802.11 ad wasn't released by the IEEE but by the WiGig Alliance. This standard was proposed as early as 2009, drafted in 2011, and formally promulgated in 2016. The reason why 802.11 is not enacted by IEEE is that it uses a new band different from all previous Wifi standards. The standard which would be released after 802.11 ax is 802.11ay with its maximum speed up to 2.4GHz or 5GHz band. The needed time to download a blue-ray movie is 10.8 seconds. And the transport distance can achieve the astonishing 300 meters to 500 meters. The 802.11 ay will be released in 2017 combined with the second generation three-frequency routers.
