The WiGig Serial Extension (WSE) v1.2 specification from the Wi-Fi Alliance will provide the initial foundation for the Media Agnostic USB (MA USB) specification. The WSE specification has been formally transferred to the USB-IF from the Wi-Fi Alliance, and the WSE specification already incorporates the USB protocol. An important design goal of the specification is to achieve wireless gigabit transfer rates while leveraging existing USB infrastructure present in the form of:
- Open application programming interfaces in every major operating system;
- USB class specifications by USB-IF device working groups;
- A wealth of open-source/OS specific drivers for USB classes;
- Vendor-specific device drivers for a multitude of USB vendor-specific devices.
Wireless devices implementing the Media Agnostic USB specification will be compliant with SuperSpeed USB (USB 3.0) and Hi-Speed USB (USB 2.0). The USB-IF has established a Media Agnostic USB Work Group which is currently developing the MA USB specification 1.0."
