Kumu Networks (http://kumunetworks.com) have come up with a design to do Wi-Fi with full duplex.
YouTube video that describes this technology: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GFCSMyLhfA
It appears that simultaneous transmission is possible, even in Wi-Fi. The term used is "self-interference cancellation technologies".
Is this going to dramatically change Wi-Fi? Will vendors adopt this readily?
Thoughts and comments?
Looks like this news broke in October 2013.
