The firm claims lab speed at 10X over existing Wi-Fi networks.

Huawei says it can deliver data over Wi-Fi 10 times faster than existing wireless connections after a lab trial took place at the company's Shenzhen research campus in China.

The Chinese telecoms firm claims the trial delivered a data transfer rate of 10.53 Gbps on 5GHz frequency bands through technologies such as MIMO-OFDA, intelligence spectrum allocation, interference coordination and hybrid access.

"The success of this prototype development, and the ten folds increase in spectrum efficiency that made it possible, paves the way for the validation of technologies needed to support the creation of next generation Wi-Fi," Huawei said in a statement.

It added: "As the demand for ultra-fast connectivity for smartphone applications continues to drive the need for higher data transmission rates, the next generation of Wi-Fi access will need to deliver a better user experience, especially in densely populated environments requiring high density deployment such as enterprise offices, airports, stadiums, shopping malls and coffee shops."

According to Huawei, the ultrafast Wi-Fi is expected to be commercially available from 2018, assuming the appropriate standard is approved in time, and there is sufficient chipset availability.
