Until now, Wi-Fi 6 has been delivering a solid broadband experience by effectively managing connected devices on crowded networks, delivering sufficiently fast speeds and performance on the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. It is already well-established and featured in most of the latest smartphones, laptops, and Wi-Fi routers, among other devices. Introduced in 2020, Wi-Fi 6E boasts all the capabilities of Wi-Fi 6 with the added benefit of connecting compatible devices to the newly available 6GHz band. Not only is the 6GHz band more than twice as wide as its 5GHz predecessor, but it is also only accessible with the latest high-performance Wi-Fi 6E (and soon-to-be Wi-Fi 7) devices – further avoiding the load and latency caused by inefficient legacy devices that congest the home network.
As with all emerging tech, the rollout has been gradual but highly anticipated by tech enthusiasts privy to the significance of the 6GHz band and its capabilities. Some current Wi-Fi 6E-supported devices include many Samsung Galaxy products like the S21 Ultra, the S22+ and Ultra, and the Galaxy Z Fold 3. Additionally, the Motorola Edge, the Google Pixel 6, and the newest Pixel 7 and 7 Pro round out the latest Wi-Fi 6E mobile devices. In January, Apple announced the release of the 14- and 16-inch 2023 MacBook Pro, which supports Wi-Fi 6E for enhanced connectivity. The best news? The 6GHz band is so wide that, even as thousands of other connected devices continue to crop up, there will be plenty of open airwaves to support them all.
And with Wi-Fi 7 devices set to hit the market this year, the spacious 6GHz spectrum is already extending its reach to deliver even more for early adopters.
For consumers and solution providers alike, the time is now to invest in the future of Wi-Fi. The 6GHz band is here and it’s opening doors for unlimited possibilities, ready to fully support the wave of next-generation devices already on their way to connected homes across the globe.
