WiGig is open for business, with a published specification and promotional agreement to push home and office networking up to 60GHz. WiGig offers connections of up to 7Gb/sec, but operating at the top end of the dial, 60GHz, makes for very short range. WiGig will carry over about 10 meters in ideal conditions, limiting the …

I sneer at your feeble WiGig. I have an ancient Sony Laser Link "wireless" video link. Uses Infra Red.
Infra Red huh? That's up in the 30 THz region. What amazing data rate are you getting with that?

60GHz sounds like it's going to have all the hassles of IR but with higher costs. What IR tech always lacks is a temporary visible beam to assist aiming. With a visible guiding beam, you could chose a common location on a wall or ceiling for all devices to bounce their signal off of.
Sounds like you need a...
