Wi-Fi 7, as soon as we are promoted from next year

The new Wi-Fi standard, Wi-Fi 7 (802.11BE), which has been using both the 2.4 / 5 / 6GHz frequency band, and the new Wi-Fi standard, and WiFi 7 (802.11bE), which have been raised to 30 Gbps, will be expected to be distributed in next year.

Taiwanese fabless maker MediaTec has recently entered the demonstration of ‘Pai Logic’, which is a 7-supported chip,

On the other hand, Wi-Fi 6e, which is the 6GHz support specification, which started to spread from the beginning of last year, has increased to the transient specification due to the release of the router, sales delay, etc.

■ Theoretically, the maximum speed of 30 Gbps Wi-Fi 7

The theoretical rate of WiFi 5 (802.11ac) completed in 2012 was 3.5 Gbps, but WiFi 6 pulled up to 9.6 Gbps, which is the maximum speed of 3 times. WPA3, which is an encryption specification, which increases the strength so that the encryption can not be easily broken, is also supported.

WiFi 7 (802.11be) utilizes the 6GHz frequency to raise the maximum speed of 30 Gbps. The Gigabit Ethernet rate used in many families, which is 30 times the 1Gbps of 1Gbps and is the fastest transmission standard, up to 75% of Thunderbolt 4 (40 Gbps).

The fastest high-speed Internet access (10Gbps), the fastest high-speed Internet access (10 Gbps), which is currently available at home, can not take advantage of this rate. Rather, it can be seen that the headset, 8k TV used in AR / VR, and the internal network transmission rate, such as the household IoT surveillance camera.

The available channel width is about 320 MHz and 2.4GHz, 5 GHz, and 6 GHz, and the ‘MLO (MLO) function (MLO) that enhances the transmission speed.

■ MediaTech, Wi-Fi 7 Support Communication Chip ‘Pie Logic’ Demonstration

Taiwan Fabler Maker MediaTech said it was successful in the demonstration of telecommunications chip ‘pirogic’ (filogen) that supports Wi-Fi 7 on the 19th. We also added two demonstrations to major customers and industry partners.

“Wi-Fi 7 will be the first example of” Wi-Fi 7, “WiFi 7 will be the first case that wireless connections can replace wired connections for high-speed Internet access, and multi-access AR / VR applications and 4K video calls, 8K streaming, etc. I will do it. “

MediaTech will supply Wi-Fi 7 support chips to the market next year. In particular, mediatech supplies SOC to smart TV / OTT device manufacturers such as Samsung and Sony, Panasonic, Philips and Xiaomi, and Wi-Fi 7 support related products can appear faster.

■ Manufacturers “Wi-Fi 6e 6e is a transitional standard”

Currently the most widely used standard Wi-Fi (802.11ax), started to become unavailable in earnest since 2019 and completely seated on major products such as smart phones and notebooks. It took two years from a year to 1 year to seat on the market.

Since the early 2020, Wi-Fi 6e, who added, followed by the existing 2.4 / 5GHz frequency band, followed by Wi-Fi 6e, but the actual spread is slow. The device has been released since 2021, but the launch of the main wired and wireless router, AP (access point) is being released.

The Wi-Fi device manufacturers who approved for covering during the CES 2022 period of CES “Wi-Fi 6e wired and wireless router and AP are delayed on the release of semiconductor, and the release of semiconductor is delayed, and since the first half of next year, “I expected.
