Over the years the number of Wi-Fi routers has grown significantly, and by 2025, almost 100 billion internet connections will be created around the world. In addition, upcoming extremely demanding devices, including 8K videos or VR/AR games, will play a vital role in our lives gathering every bit of data at the same time.
What’s left of previous generation—The 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands—has now become a lower entry barrier waiting for devices to contribute to network congestion. As a way of achieving less dense use, more devices, and increased data traffic, the highly efficient Wi-Fi 6 with a large, transparent band was introduced.
Wi-Fi 6 was first launched with new features last year to offer next-generation access to next-generation routers. In brief, this is a simpler and more powerful Wi-Fi variant that helps wireless access points such as routers to help handle networks full of users and consumer devices. And now with the launch of Wi-Fi 6E, the network arena is getting even wider.
The market term for consumers to recognize Wi-Fi systems running under 6 GHz is Wi-Fi 6E or 802.11ax. Wi-Fi 6E provides the functionality and capabilities to expand Wi-Fi 6 into the 6 GHz network, including improved capacity, lower latency, and higher data speeds.
The production is already ongoing, and it is anticipated that Wi-Fi 6E devices be available rapidly after 6 GHz regulatory approvals. This increased ability for broadband allows more innovation in Wi-Fi which makes important benefits to customers, industries with ecosystems.
Because of its identical characteristics and its closeness to the 5 GHz band where Wi-Fi already exists, 6 GHz offers increased spectrum power, contiguous spectrum blocks to 14 more 80 MHz channels, or 7 more 160 MHz broad channels and less congested bandwidth from standard Wi-Fi 4 or Wi-Fi 5 networks.
Wi-Fi 6E uses the 6 GHz features to support quick data processing apps with high bandwidth, including high-quality video playback, augmented reality, and lower latency networking for online gaming apps. It would influence both businesses and customers with these fast speeds and low latency.
Wi-Fi 6 is the secret to this better network, so it won’t be feasible to bind earlier generations of Wi-Fi users to the 6GHz channel. This implies that Wi-Fi 6E will not be equipped with older generation devices which serve as poor links in the chain.
Developments such as Wi-Fi 6E in the networking industry compelled us to seek out for the best networking solution providers.
