CSIRO has achieved a world-first in wireless communications, by demonstrating a high-efficiency six gigabit per second point-to-point connection.

This technology could be used to set up point to point links between two base stations, particularly where conventional links such as wire or fibre optic are too expensive or impractical.

A six gigabit wireless link can transfer of the contents of a DVD in less than ten seconds.
