new Delhi. Internet Speed: Efforts are being made to make the Internet faster and better. Now Qualcomm and Mediatek have announced the upgrade to Wi-Fi 6. Qualcomm has said that it is working on Wi-Fi 7 which is the next generation wireless connectivity standard. With this, users will get double internet speed as compared to Wi-Fi 6. Also, its latency will also be high. MediaTek has said that its products with new technology will be launched in the market in early 2023.
Qualcomm announced Wi-Fi 7 via a blog post, saying that it will be used in XR, social gaming, Metaverse and Edge computers with improvements in latency, speed and capacity. At the same time, MediaTek showed the potential of the Phylogic connectivity portfolio of Wi-Fi 7 with its live demo a few days back. The company says that our company is involved in the early adapters from Wi-Fi 7.
These are its specialty
Wi-Fi 7 is an upgrade version of Wi-Fi 6 (WiFi 6). The speed of this new wireless connectivity standard will be double that of Wi-Fi 6. The Wi-Fi 6 standard offers only two frequency bands (2.4GHz and 5GHz), while the Wi-Fi 7 technology will offer three frequency bands – 2.4GHz, 5GHz and 6GHz. Speeds will reach 30GHz with these, which is about the same speed as the Thunderbolt 3 port. Wi-Fi 7 will get a transmission rate of 30 Gbps. Wi-Fi 6 uses 160 MHz of bandwidth. At the same time, 320 MHz single-channel bandwidth will be used in Wi-Fi 7.
Very beneficial for them (Features of WiFi 7)
Qualcomm said in a blog post that with Wi-Fi 7, multiple bands will be available to users and all frequency bands will work together. It will be used in different fields, which will include XR, Metaverse, Social Gaming and Cloud Computing, and users will be given AR / VR experiences. Wi-Fi 7 can also be used for industrial Internet of Things (IoT) and video streams.
WiFi 7 will come by next year
Qualcomm says it is working closely with IEEE and WFA members to finalize E-Fi 7. Qualcomm has not said anything yet on when the products with Wi-Fi 7 technology will be available in the market. At the same time, chip maker MediaTek has said that in the beginning of the year 2023, it will launch WiFi 7-equipped products in the market.
