Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/5s626k/60ghz_consumer) has announced the addition of the "60GHz Consumer Technologies WiGig & WirelessHD Go Head to Head" report to their offering.
WirelessHD has enjoyed a head start over WiGig, having been shipping in devices since 2010, but has failed to enjoy support from top-tier electronics manufacturers. WiGig entered the market in late 2012, looking to better appeal to consumers by including features such as Wi-Fi failover compatibility and the ability to do basic networking with WiGig.
These additional features, in addition to support from a multitude of silicon providers for WiGig, and WirelessHD's recently announced mobile chipsets will make 2013 a year where both standards go head to head for the hearts and minds of consumers.
Included in this report is an in depth analysis of the applications driving adoption of WirelessHD and WiGig. This report also looks at 14 different markets from smartphones to docking stations examining the number of devices shipping with WirelessHD and WiGig from 2012 to 2017. A forecast of the value of the WiGig market from 2012 to 2017 is also included.
The information contained in this report comes from both primary and secondary sources.

Interviews were conducted during the third quarter of 2012. Companies briefed for the report included Wilocity, Peraso Technologies, Tensorcom, Nitero, Broadcom, Qualcomm Atheros, Netgear, D-Link, the Wi-Fi Alliance, and the Wireless Gigabit Alliance.
