WiFi: 6, 6E, 7

What is Wi-Fi 6E?

An evolution of Wi-Fi 6, Wi-Fi 6E adds support for 6GHz spectrum, PLUS faster wireless speeds and lower latencies. However, in order to receive these benefits, users need a new router and Wi-Fi 6E-compatible devices to tap into these new and improved airwaves. 

What’s Next for Wi-Fi 6E and beyond?

The most significant wireless performance enhancements of Wi-Fi 6 now rely upon better integrated antenna systems (particularly with ever decreasing device enclosure sizes) and the coexistence of Wi-Fi with other RF sources (such as IoT within the same enclosure). 

Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E (802.11ax) promise numerous enhancements over preceding Wi-Fi technologies, including greater throughput, improved spectrum utilization, and improved multi-user experiences. However, tighter RF specifications require a greater level of sophistication of the RF system design.  

Airgain’s Wi-Fi 6 antenna solutions have been borne out of the necessity to conquer the specific challenges of Wi-Fi 6 embedded device implementation, aiming to ensure ultimate performance with custom designed devices. 

Leveraging our proprietary over-the-air (OTA) performance validation and optimization methodologies, we’ve designed tools and solutions to help customers speed up wireless system development and reduce time-to-market. We work with leading chipset manufacturers on Wi-Fi 6 reference designs, and we use this know-how to provide our customers with solutions that solve the specific challenges of Wi-Fi 6 embedded antenna system implementation.
