While 5G enables a faster and more reliable connection to mobile data, Wifi technology is expected to benefit from a significant improvement again this year thanks to a new specification called Wifi 6E.
The Wi-Fi Alliance has been working on this new technology for some time and began a week ago to certify devices that are compatible with Wifi 6E. In addition, as early as January, some brands started introducing new devices compatible with this new wifi.
This year Wifi makes its revolution
As the Wi-Fi Alliance indicated in a press release in January this year, we can have an unprecedented experience with Wifi 6E as long as we use compatible routers and devices.
However, the provision of Wifi 6E is also state-dependent. In order to offer faster and more reliable WiFi, Wifi 6E uses parts of the 6 GHz band (while the old versions of Wifi only used the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands). Harmonization is therefore required before starting Wifi 6E in a country.
France shouldn’t be late
And the good news is that France shouldn’t be lagging behind on this technology as authorities could give the go-ahead as early as March. In any case, this is suggested in an article recently published on the 01net.com website, quoting a spokesman for the ANFR (Agence Nationale des Frequences).
“The changes to the National Frequency Bands Distribution Table (TNRBF) were already adopted by the ANFR Board of Directors last November. They will soon lead to the publication of a Prime Minister’s decree. “said this spokesman. “Arcep will therefore be able to implement the harmonized framework very quickly after March”he also stated.
Products compatible with Wifi 6E are gradually arriving
In any case, devices should be provided with Wifi 6E very quickly. Quoted in a press release from the Wi-Fi Alliance, Phil Solis, director of research at IDC said: “This year, we expect new Wi-Fi 6E chipsets from multiple companies, as well as a host of new Wi-Fi 6E smartphones, PCs, and laptops in the first quarter of 2021, followed by TV and TV VR product announcements mid-year. “”
Wi-Fi 6E support, for example, is a feature of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 chip, which will operate most high-end Android smartphones from 2021. As the company explains: “This platform includes the recently launched Qualcomm® FastConnect ™ 6900 mobile connectivity system, which supports the fastest Wi-Fi 6 speeds of any mobile Wi-Fi offerings in the industry (up to 3.6 Gbps). as well as a new capacity of 6 GHz with Wi-Fi 6E. “”
The alliance also promises significant changes in connectivity with the availability of the new band. “The global interoperability of 6E Wi-Fi devices ensures rapid adoption and innovation at 6 GHz.”said Edgar Figueroa, President and CEO of the Wi-Fi Alliance. “Users will soon have unparalleled WiFi that dramatically improves apps and opens up new use cases that transform their connected experiences. “”
To better understand the impact of introducing Wifi 6E and the improvements it can make, here is a video showcasing the new technology released on the Wifi Alliance’s YouTube channel.
