Wi-Fi Alliance® introduces Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 7™

Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 7™ has been unveiled, introducing advanced features to enhance Wi-Fi® performance and connectivity across various environments. This latest Wi-Fi generation, Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 7, is set to revolutionize use cases such as multi-user AR/VR/XR, 3-D training, gaming, industrial IoT, and automotive applications. The certification promises high throughput, deterministic latency, and increased reliability for critical data transfer.

Wi-Fi 7 is expected to witness swift adoption with over 233 million devices entering the market by 2024 and a projected growth to 2.1 billion devices by 2028. Early adopters, including smartphones, PCs, tablets, and access points, will be followed by customer premises equipment (CPE) and augmented/virtual reality (AR/VR) devices.

Key features of Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 7 include:

* 320 MHz channels: Doubling the widest channel size to facilitate multigigabit device speeds and high throughput.

* Multi-Link Operation (MLO): Enables devices to transmit and receive data simultaneously over multiple links, enhancing throughput, reducing latency, and improving reliability.

* 4K QAM: Achieving 20% higher transmission rates than 1024 QAM.

* 512 Compressed block-ack: Improving efficiency and reducing overhead.

* Multiple RUs to a single STA: Enhancing flexibility for spectrum resource scheduling to improve spectrum efficiency.

* Triggered Uplink Access: Optimizing Wi-Fi 6 defined triggered uplink access for latency-sensitive streams and satisfying Quality of Service (QoS) requirements.

* Emergency Preparedness Communication Services (EPCS): Providing a seamless National Security & Emergency Preparedness (NSEP) service experience while maintaining priority and quality of service in Wi-Fi access networks.

* Wi-Fi Alliance® has garnered support from industry leaders including Broadcom, CommScope RUCKUS Networks, Intel, MaxLinear, MediaTek, and Qualcomm. The certification is anticipated to propel the adoption of Wi-Fi 7, delivering faster speeds, improved efficiency, and increased reliability to redefine the Wi-Fi experience.
