If you haven't yet gone wireless in your virtual office, the Wi-Fi Alliance and Wireless Gigabit Alliance are giving you one more reason to make the move: speed.

The groups are sharing technology specifications to develop a next-generation program to support Wi-Fi in the 60 GHz frequency band. That means better wireless performance for your wireless devices.

"There is no question that this agreement will enable 60 GHz technology to form an important part of the high-performance future for wireless networking," says Phil Solis, practice director for Wireless Connectivity at ABI Research. "By cooperating, the groups have set a course for interoperability and backward compatibility that will accelerate the adoption and usefulness of multi-gigabit wireless networking."

What all this means to you is your laptop will run faster from your wireless router—and so will any other Internet connected devices you operate from your virtual office. With faster data transfer speeds, it makes it more convenient to tap into services like Davinci Virtual's web conferencing solution without fear of the presentations lagging through slower speeds.

Chances are, if you are one of the cutting-edge mobile professionals who depend on virtual office technologies, you've been waiting desperately for faster wireless speeds. The partnership between the Wi-Fi Alliance and the Gigabit Alliance could not only set the stage for faster connections on the home front, but as airports, hotels and coffee shops also adopt the technology you'll get faster connections while you are on the go.
