With the launch of the WiFi 7 Networking Pro Series (Wi-Fi 7 Networking Pro Series), Qualcomm announced the introduction of Wi-Fi chips for access points, premium home routers and mesh networks. They provide up to 33 Gbps quad-band connectivity over 16 streams, a more steady connection, and reduced interference.
In the 2.4GHz, 5Hz, and 6GHz bands, these four systems allow much broader 320MHz channels than previous generations did.
In spite of the fact that the IEEE 802.11be standard is expected to be adopted in 2019 and 2020, firms are already looking ahead to the next-generation Wi-Fi 6/6E standard, which feels like it was just introduced only a few days ago.
Multi-Link Operation (MLO) will be introduced to allow for the use of numerous radio links on various channels at the same time. AIP (Adaptive Interface Puncturing) is another technique for removing overly packed spectrum spaces.
As a result of the new technology provided by Qualcomm, stadium internet connections will be much faster and more stable. Wi-Fi 7 and Wi-Fi 6 will be able to coexist for a long time as markets “mature and adapt,” according to Nick Kucharewski, VP and General Manager of Wireless Infrastructure and Networking at San Diego business.
The new Wi-Fi standard is now being developed by Qualcomm, but it is not expected to be ratified until 2024, so we will have to wait a little longer before widespread adoption occurs.
Qualcomm has announced a slew of new technologies that will allow stadiums to experience even faster and more consistent internet connectivity. As markets “mature and evolve,” Wi-Fi 7 and Wi-Fi 6 will be able to coexist for a long time, according to the company's VP and General Manager of Wireless Infrastructure and Networking.
It's worth noting that while Qualcomm is laying the groundwork for the new Wi-Fi standard, certification isn't expected until 2024, which means widespread adoption will have to wait a little longer.
