Wi-Fi 7 – WLAN standard IEEE 802.11be for up to 40 GBit/s

MediaTek company recently published its Wi-Fi 7 efforts. The new WLAN standard, which is intended to replace Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E, could therefore be used with the first devices as early as 2023. In the first demonstrations of the underlying technology with multi-link technology (MLO) and using all available bandwidths, success in terms of transmission rates has already been measurable. Thanks to a rate of up to 40 GBit/s, Wi-Fi 7 should be able to keep up with Thunderbolt 3 and enable 4K video calls, 8K streaming, AR and VR applications and much more.

Taiwan-based MediaTek has released information on the first Wi-Fi 7 demo. Here you will find details about WLAN with IEEE 802.11be and a data rate of up to 40 GBit/s.

MediaTek shows possibilities of Wi-Fi 7 (IEEE 802.11be)

MediaTek is a semiconductor manufacturer from Taiwan that mainly develops ARM chips and whose technology is in televisions, smartphones, Amazon devices and many other devices used worldwide. In a current press release the company reports on the first demo demonstrations of Wi-Fi 7, which is called IEEE 802.11be. 

In addition to 2,4 GHz, 5 GHz and 6 GHz, the technology can also access 320 MHz channels and also switch multiple data channels via different ports at the same time. This should enable a large data turnover. Wi-Fi 7 is said to be 2,4 times faster than Wi-Fi 6 with the same number of antennas. The first products with compatible technology are expected for the coming year.

Up to 40 Gbps for business, industry, entertainment and more

The data rates, which should be in no way inferior to a cable connection with the Thunderbolt 3 standard, can be useful in many areas. Among other things, 8K streaming of video content should be possible quickly and without jerking. Video telephony with the best picture and sound quality is also promised thanks to the technology described above. Other network applications for large data or M2M communication are conceivable in companies and industry. In the area of ​​entertainment, AR and VR headsets should also be considered.

"Today's consumers want an always-on, reliable, and fast WiFi connection for many applications such as video calling, 4K/8K TV entertainment, real-time gaming, and more” said Moon Ho Lee, President of Korea Mercury, according to the linked press release. "MediaTek's Wi-Fi 7 technology can meet current needs for all the applications consumers are using today and also open the door to future AR/VR applications that we cannot even imagine today."
