WiFi 6E : The Biggest Wifi Upgrade After 20 Years

The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) permitted the use of the 6GHz band spectrum for unlicensed use ; the same regulatory acceptance that lets your router broadcast over the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands

This is a most exciting upgrade after 20 years and this could be a remarkable upgrade, faster, more reliable connections from the next generation of devices.

Wi-Fi 6E is an extension of Wi-Fi 6 and supports all-new 6GHz frequency. previous Wi-Fi were oly restriccted to two bands ; 2.4GHz and 5GHz. With the 2.4GHz and 5GHz band, Spectrum Congestion is a huge problem. If there are several Wi-Fi networks in someone’s area, then too many signals interfere with each other. It is the same reason why they feel their Wi-Fi connection is getting slower and less reliable.

New 6E routers could open up 1200MHz of spectrum in the 6GHz band. Because of this Wi-Fi 6E allows to 14 additional 80 MHz channels and 7 additional 160 MHz channels. In fact, these channels will not affect with each other. So the above mentioned problem will be sorted.

Devices are expected to start supporting 6GHz Wi-Fi by the end of 2020, so its implementation isn’t far away. When it arrives, expect to see it branded under the name “Wi-Fi 6E.” We hope both routers and devices will be roll out befor the end of this year.

Sooner we will be experiance the next generation devices and the wifi experiance.
