There is no such thing as too thin, too rich, too much horsepower or too much data transmission speed. That is why semiconductor companies spend millions of dollars developing faster ICs, network processors and countless other ways of increasing transmission speed. But, there might be a less expensive alternative.
Although the just announced HyperPipe™ technology applies to wired or fiber optic connections, there is no reason that the underlying technology could not be applied to wireless networks. The need for speed on WiMAX or other wireless networks could be satisfied with much less expense than by using faster, more expensive semiconductors manufactured on advanced technology nodes.
