Qualcomm announces the launch of the series Wi-Fi 7 Networking Pro, a line of Wi-Fi chips for enterprise access points, premium home routers, and advanced mesh systems. Among the proposed improvements are: quad-band connectivity up to 33 Gbps on 16 streams, more stable connection and minimal interference. But let’s find out something more in detail.
Qualcomm introduces the Wi-Fi 7 Networking Pro series
Incredible news from Qualcommwhich announces Wi-Fi 7 Networking Pro, a set of four platforms that they support 320 MHz channels much wider on 2.4 GHz, 5 Hz and 6 GHz spectra. The novelty comes after Wi-Fi 6 / 6E was widely adopted in 2019 and 2020, although companies are already aiming for a next-generation standard , 802.11b. Apparently, the new series will bring the Multi-Link Operation (MLO) for using multiple radio links on different channel frequencies. And adds the function Adaptive Interface Puncturingwhich discards overly congested spectrum slots.
All these technologies, introduced by Qualcomm, will allow faster and more stable connection speeds. Even in difficult places like stadiums, for example. It is quite clear, then, that the Wi-Fi 7 Networking Pro series represents a major step forward for the industry. Nevertheless Nick KucharewskiVP and General Manager of Wireless Infrastructure and Networking at the San Diego company, said Wi-Fi 7 and Wi-Fi 6 will be able to coexist for a long time to come as markets “mature and evolve.” .
In this regard, it’s worth mentioning that while Qualcomm is pioneering the next Wi-Fi standard, it won’t be certified until 2024, so we’ll have to wait a little longer for mass adoption to become real. That said, it is clear that our expectations are high. Very high, indeed.
